Hi there, my name is Gary, an experienced professional photographer who has a wide grounding in commercial, event and wedding photography. I’ve merged elements from all these disciplines to develop a unique and creative style of event photography.

My design background has also influenced my style as an event photographer, inspiring me to push boundaries to capture that special shot. I don’t just look to record the event but to capture a whole selection of unique images and moments that will really bring it to life.

I am happy to just get on with a job independently and use my experience to ensure you get the shots you require. But if you have specific ideas and ‘must have’ shots, then I’ll be pleased to develop a brief with you.

Clients often tell me I’m very friendly and chilled-out for an event photographer, so you can trust me with your shyest employee or most time-pressed director. You can also depend on me not to take intrusive photos of your celebrity guests – I understand the need for discretion and am not looking to take embarrassing paparazzi shots.

Event photography, especially in glamorous London venues, really gives me a buzz.  But when I’m not taking photographs I enjoy the simple life – watching my two young sons play football, walking my two old dogs and taking time out with my partner, family and friends.

Why not have a look at my two other websites?

Along with photographing events I also have a lot of experience photographing weddings and commercial commissions. I bring my knowledge of wedding and commercial photography to offer my event photography clients a polished and creative style.

I guess you could say that this is my main website as every single shoot I complete will appear on its blog. It's a great place to keep up to date with other types of things that I photograph.

Wedding photography is a little special so I've recently launched a dedicated website. I photograph weddings all over the UK and have also photographed a destination wedding in Tuscany.
