Gary offers services in the following areas:
Issue-Led Documentary Photographer and Photojournalist
I generate my own story features on topical issues or assignments based on the needs of NGO’s non-profits and charities
Humanitarian Investigative Photojournalism
or “Journalism of Attachment” for when being neutral or an aloof observer just won’t do! When a side has to be taken to show the people cuaght up in the story by living it with them, first hand. Not to just point out the problems, but to present solutions to the problems and highlighting the emotions and ordeals of the people who are - against all odds, still persevering to survive or make a difference.
Humanitarian Photographer for NGO's and Charities
requiring documentary photography, photojournalism or reportage for editorial and advertising campaigns on issues of human rights, environment and social issues or needing detailed studies, documentary evidence or reportage on behalf of people and cultures not represented in society or by the media who need a voice.
for companies, campaign groups and NGO’s who need survey photography, reportage, public relations photography and images for websites and publicity.
Social Media Reportage
The explosion in social networking sites over the past decade has transformed the way we communicate. To this end I have included equipment and workflow strategies to enable this for companies, NGO's which can be integrated into existing social media strategies used by a NGO or charity. I also run workshops on mobile journalism using smart phones for humanitarian and environmental organisations needing still images, audio, video or written text pieces or mixed media.
Hazardous Environment Photographer
I have and will work in hazardous environments (HE) if covering humanitarian or environmental issues whether the cause is natural disaster or conflict. I don’t do war photography or the traditional ambulance chasing body-bag photojournalism as it doesn’t help show the cause or solution to the problem, neither does it help find peaceful solutions to conflict.
