Gary Austin

I am a documentary and editorial photographer based in Derbyshire UK. I have had a varied career over 27 years working as a freelance photographer which has ranged from documentary, photojournalism to commissioned work and personal art projects.

I’m now branching out into more humanitarian and cultural photography which can be boiled down to photographing people on location.

My style and approach is simple, the photographs of people I produce are up-close and personal, full of drama, spontaneity and natural raw emotion.

While my greatest talents are the ability to mix with any class or culture of people and to get nervous subjects to relax in front of my camera. I am also excellent at solving visual problems and working in difficult or hazardous conditions and meeting deadlines.

The driving force to my work is exploring culture, food, traditions and the human condition by photographing real people on the streets, at home or at work. With a professional background in photojournalism and a degree in art photography, my photographic voice has evolved to be a blend of traditional documentary and portrait photography, an approach which allows for the subjective interpretation of the story as an artist.
