Lucy Nicholson has been named as the next Director of Photography for The Associated Press. Lucy was previously a staff photographer for Reuters, based in Los Angeles for 17 years.

AP says: Lucy is an exceptionally talented photojournalist and newsroom leader, and the right person to take on this essential role at a time of significant change and opportunity at the AP and across the industry.

Lucy has a truly unique range of expertise and skill. She is an award-winning photographer, photo editor, videographer, writer and leader. She joins the AP from Reuters, where she has most recently led the agency’s photography in Europe, overseeing a team of 190 staff and freelance photographers in 50 countries. In that time, she led photo coverage of major stories including the war in Ukraine, managed workflow changes to boost speed and competitiveness, and increased the gender diversity of photographers in the region.

Lucy will be the first woman to serve as AP’s Director of Photography. She will be based in London.
