Modernist photographer; set up Gretton Photographers (1930) to specialise in commercial and colour photography. Worked mainly for Crowford's Advertising Agency for which his brother, the artist Ashley Havinden was Director; notable campaigns for HMV, Standard Cars and Monte Carlo. His stark, precise and geometric photographs spoke of the modernist ideals appearing in architecture, design and photography.
