Gavin Smart is an award-winning freelance photographer. He has a rich and diverse creative background which began with his rigorous musical training, studying the tuba at London’s prestigious Guildhall School of Music. While he no longer plays music professionally, this period of his life gave Gavin colourful life experiences which continue to shape his photographic process.
His cinematically inspired images feature theatrical light, emotive colour and constructed photography, drawing a strong influence from painting, film and literature. Using imaginative storytelling to produce creative and thought-provoking imagery, his photography has since become a vital means of personal expression and an aid in making sense of an ever-evolving world.
