The Shephard Press Ltd was established in 1981 by Alexander Shephard and we launched our first title Helicopter World that year. Over the next two and a half decades we have launched a number of other magazine titles including the globally renowned Unmanned Vehicles in the early 1990s, as well as establishing an industry leading range of market handbooks.

In 2008 the company was reinvigorated through our acquisition by a new owner, Nicholas Prest, and under new management we have gone on to launch and acquire a number of leading defence magazines and handbooks.

Rebranded as Shephard Media in 2010 the company has also become the leader in the digital media revolution in the sector with a frequently evolving web, video and social media presence, as well as the development of our Defence Insight business information solution and Studio creative division.
