Meet the Team


Meet the award-winning creative team behind the world’s leading stamp magazine…


Dean Shepherd – Editor 

Dean became the editor of GSM in 2013 – the pinnacle of a career in philatelic magazine publishing which began more than 20 years ago. For Dean, the attraction of stamp collecting is how these often beautiful works of art can open a unique window into world history. 



Gary Keeping – Design Sub-editor 

Gary has been a key cog in the GSM wheel since 2012. His creative eye and love for the content ensures every issue of GSM looks its best. Bitten by the collecting bug early on in his career at Stanley Gibbons, Gary is now a keen collector of early GB line engraved.
