Gavin Prest

Gavin is the only 3X Master Craftsman Qualification holder in the world, and a photographer who loves to create images with a narrative, giving his viewers reasons to ask questions. Gavin specialises in all genres including weddings, newborns, portraits and commercial. He is also an internationally respected Judge. He has a passion for using black and white film. “With a colour image I feel you can sometimes be distracted by the different sensations on the eye whereas with black and white your focus is purely on the subject of the image” (his own words). Gavin lives on the East Yorkshire coast and loves to spend time capturing his surroundings, be it the landscape surrounding him, the beach or even the people! Gavin is also an excellent trainer who has run many online Webinars, featured in photography magazines, and published his own book which sold out in days. In short, he is a well renowned and likeable photographer.
