He worked in most of the British Studios including Twickenham Film Studios. He served in the army in both world wars, going to East Africa with the Royal Pioneer Corps and afterwards transferred to the Intelligence Corps, and for a time was in charge of East Africa Command Photographic section. He executed stills on Great Expectations (Cineguild), The Upturned Glass (Sydney Box), They Made Me A Fugitive (Alliance), This Was A Woman (Excelsior), etc. Then became chief still cameraman for Gainsborough Pictures, Islington.

The portrait, on heavyweight paper, is in good to very good condition with a few minor surface marks. The edges are slightly uneven which probably means it has been trimmed slightly. Stanborough’s stamp is on the reverse
