Paul Conroy started out in life in the military.  He was a forward observer for a battery of M107 heavy artillery guns. During this time he developed a passion for music and photography. He became involved in journalism when a group of road protestors invited him along to film and shoot stills on a mission to the Balkans, he did and has never looked back. When they reached their destination Conroy stayed on to make a documentary. It took him six months and the film played the festival circuit and won him a commission from channel 4 to make an hour documentary 'Bad Trip' Conroy then made films for the BBC documentaries unit on the 2001 UK elections. After that he was off to Iraq where he first met Colvin and they became firm friends.  His Iraq film won many plaudits and was screened at festivals in the US and the UK. To fund his many jaunts as a freelancer Conroy became head of photography and film for Joss Stone the UK singer. His work for Stone enabled him to take on some of the riskier assignments to the Congo and other of Africa's dangerous civil wars. Conroy then worked camera for SKY TV SOS lampedusa. He and colleague Sergio Ramazotti spent weeks in Tunisia infiltrating a gang of smugglers who were some of the most prolific smugglers on the coast.Conroy was one of the first journalists to enter Libya when the gates broke down. He covered the war for agencies and the News of the world. The Sunday Times soon noticed  his work and he was sent on assignment with Marie Colvin. Together they went to Misrata for two days and ended up staying two months.Over the next six months he was in Libya either with Colvin or Mikes Amoore, Kabul correspondent with the paper. After Libya Conroy was sent with Amoore to Syria, they entered the country illegally in January and reported from the town of A Quasyr. Their assignment was ended dramatically when the Free Syrian Army helped them flee Assad troops.Conroy was then assigned to go back to Syria with Colvin. It was to be their last ever assignment together as Colvin was killed in a rocket attack on 22 Feb 2012. Conroy was born in Liverpool and joined the army at 16. He, like Colvin had a passion for sailing.
