Gary Hayes

Gary has been taking photographs since he was 12 years old and has always focused on emotive landscapes and travelogue imagery. He has lived in UK, USA and Australia, currently residing in Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, using it as a base to build up his catalogue of the rich local scenery, world travel & fine tuning his production technique. He has worked as both a professional portrait/wedding photographer and in the early 2000s a photojournalist for local London tabloids alongside his BBC job at the time. His pictures have appeared in magazines, stamps, exhibitions, TV, Multimedia and newspapers.

The Photographs
Gary tries to find beauty in our world and has travelled extensively in Central Asia, Europe, US, Hawaii, Australia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Canada, North Africa, Turkey and many more places. His work varies from travel, abstract, landscapes, street photography, studio portraiture, virtual worlds, musicians, events and much more. He enjoys capturing the land bathed in glorious sunrise or sunset light in less trodden places.

From his late teens he spent many years using medium format film cameras including Mamiya RB67ProSD & 7 series, Pentax 67 and Fuji plus he used a large format 7×5 inch camera for a few years too. Gary became proficient in medium format chemical darkroom techniques through the 1990s but in the early 2000s was one of the first photographers in London to switch to professional digital with the Canon 10D. He currently uses Canon 5D3 with L series lenses, Fuji X100s & Canon EOS M as his main ‘location’ kit but sometimes hires medium format film panoramic cameras for commissioned shoots. He currently uses a 4×4 Toyota to get deeper into the Australian bush and is often seen walking back through thick bush in the near dark after another momentous sunset session. He has a range of printers in his photo and music studio and he uses local printers for very large prints.
