My name is Gavin Crilly and I have been working as a professional photographer for nearly 30 years covering press, PR and corporate photography in London and the South West of England including Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham and Gloucester.
I first started as a portrait photographer in Selfridges on Oxford Street in the mid 1980's moving on to newspapers and magazines holding staff and freelance positions covering news sport and features for both news agencies and daily papers with pictures being syndicated world wide.
A camera geek and dedicated commercial photographer.
I appreciate design in all it's forms, from the elegance of a Louboutin to the monolithic architecture of a Land Rover, from a textural edible temptation to the jewellery of a glistening brandy glass. Design and imagery excite me and drive my passion to create beautiful images in digital and print formats that my clients will adore.
With a background in picture editing on national and international publications, I moved into photography in 2010, with a Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography. I apply my documentary style across several genres, including travel, food, portraits and events. My meticulous eye for detail always ensures I deliver a superlative product on time and to brief.
I work across the globe for editorial, commercial and NGO clients.
My work includes commercial, corporate and editorial assignments.
I especially shoot a lot of portraits, mostly of people at their most relaxed and natural. I can communicate effectively with anyone with whom I have a language in common and with many with whom I don’t.
My clients include creative and communications agencies, large corporations, magazines, entrepreneurs and entertainers.
I am a documentary portrait photographer looking into niche groups and subcultures that are often overlooked. I use subtle lighting techniques to bring a scene to life, to portray people as they are, in their moment.
