A little piece about me
** WHERE IT ALL BEGAN **
My dad was a keen photographer so i suppose it just rubbed off onto me. Got my first SLR well before the digital revolution kicked in ( that really did separate the men from the boys). Got the bug and went on to do a Post Graduate Diploma in Photojournalism. I had dreams of being a National Geographic photographer....yeh right. Delusions of grandeur. Years later I was asked to cover a wedding and i said yes, what a stressful day but I loved it and the rest is history as they say.

** ME **
Born in the North, raised in the South and have come full circle and now living in Whitby. I'm at my happiest on top of a mountain which usually means i'm skiing somewhere on the Tatra Mountains. Thats my new found passion. I love Poland, its become my second home thanks to my Polish long term partner. If i'm not skiing then sitting on top off a mountain in the lake district will do just fine. I love cycling, my coffee on a morning and good wine on the night.
I Love to travel. Poland being my number 1 choice.... the people, history, food and stunning scenery make it feel like home.
Oh - former rock drummer (had my 15 minutes of fame, though it feels like 5). Now gluten intolerant........arrrgh cakes are my weakness. Hate having my photo taken. See above picture.
** MY STYLE - MY APPROACH **
I love observing people. Not just at weddings but in life in general. My style is very natural, unobtrusive whilst capturing those little moments you probably never knew took place. Finding new perspectives & breathing new life into my style. That's my journalistic background kicking in.
I see myself as a guest at your wedding, blending in with family & friends to capture your day in the most natural way possible. The No1 compliment i always receive..."Gary, we never even knew you where there" . Perfect.
