About Me

Gareth Burge Small

I am a keen photographer who loves nothing more than being behind the camera and trying new ways to capture those magic moments, be it a stunning sunset, a dramatic landscape or a memorable portrait.

I was lucky enough to grow up in a family that loved nature and photography, and I had an excellent photography teacher in my dad, who not only taught me which way round to hold the camera but also how to work in a darkroom, and employ the various techniques such as dodge/burn, cropping, filtering and tinting. Nowadays I’m doing the same thing, except this time working in the digital format, but the principles remain the same.

I am based in Ayr in south-west Scotland, and love travelling and capturing new sights and locations. I am fascinated with how light can constantly change the “feel” of a landscape, creating different textures, patterns and colours. I hope that my passion for photography and “capturing the moment” is translated into something special for you, the viewer.

I also have a Facebook page which I encourage you to visit, and hopefully
as well.

Give me a shout if you have any questions at all.
