Damien Gaillard, Technical Development Manager

A native of Lyons, France, Gaillard is a computer science fan and Linux addict. He graduated in 2005 with a Masters Degree in Software Engineering. His biggest fear is doing the same thing every day. He needs to be constantly learning and creating.

Jacqui Norman, Web Editor

A self-confessed pedant and stickler for accuracy, Jacqui leads a reclusive but bandwidth-heavy existence in the Snowdonia National Park, from whence she issues Picture Calls, Newsletters and other proclamations to fotolibra contributors. She admits to having been a 'little bit of a bully' at school, where she always came top of her class. Her big regret is that she never went to Uni.

Nick Webb 1949-2012

Nick was fotolibra's non-exec Chairman. He was a huge man in every sense. Frighteningly intelligent, incredibly funny, enviably cheerful, amazingly wise and always encouraging, he died suddenly of a stroke in April 2012. He will be sadly missed by his family, and everyone at fotolibra. Prior to becoming an author, Nick was Managing Director of Simon & Schuster (UK) for ten years.
