Gary is a man of the local landscape – he is deeply passionate about the stunning moorland and countryside we have around us here in Holmfirth. He is relatively new to the world of photography but is already making a name for himself as a landscape photographer with his work been shown on TV, books and magazines as well as online.
Limited edition prints and licences of all his works are also available as are his services as a wedding photographer.
“The landscape we have on our doorstep here in Holmfirth is breath taking. I feel so lucky to live in the area I do with so many beautiful spots. My passion for photography started by trying to capture what we have and share it with others. It also gives me a good excuse to get out and about in the hills and wander around!”
