About Me

Hi, I’m Gerard, a professional photographer based half an hour away from central London. I live in a comfy two bedroom flat together with Rebecca Tun (www.modelmayhem.com/rebecca-tun) and we're happy to host talented travelling models.

Nothing inspires me more than collaborating with enthusiastic and curious individuals who are equally in love with the creative process, and trying to capture the beauty within them.

I generally work in such a way that allows models freedom to express themselves. I find this makes for an enjoyable shoot and the best way to create a genuine kind of art with emotional impact.

Particularly when shooting with someone for the first time I tend to avoid a rigid schedule, favouring a relaxed and flexible approach that allows us both to get a feel for each other's personalities and adapt organically.

I love to experiment creatively, to challenge myself by exploring different styles, shooting in a variety of locations and adapting to working with different kinds of model with varying levels of experience.

If you would like to create together, please get in touch!

"Gerard is definitely some kind of wizard. I’ve never met anyone else who was more obsessed than me with the magic of light. This weird wizard kidnapped me - for an outrageously long time - with his clever tricks and exuberant imagination. It was confusing, as it’s usually my job to be the captivator. Gerard hit upon the best way to harness my creative spirit. I work best when I’m both captivator and captive. (Fun fact: that’s what my name means.) Without a doubt, this nonsense is going to repeat itself. Gerard is a ridiculously wonderful collaborator. And in case you were wondering, Gerard is not a scary wizard; he is one of the kindest and most generous souls you will ever meet. I can strongly urge other models to find out, as others have before me, what I’m talking about." Read less

"After being in talks with Gerard for a while, more than a year and half? We finally were able to shoot just outside of London in Kent. Gerard offered me hosting for three nights and he was incredibly sweet, generous with his hospitality (meeting me at the station, tea, the magic of hot water with lemon!) I had a really comfortable stay and felt very comfortable with this kind and gentle soul, with lots of great, meaningful conversations. We were able to shoot at a local park with some timid deer and that was magical just to be around them....and also shooting indoors with some lovely textures and colours, (the salmon pink hallway came out amazing with my hair and pale skin!) Gerard had great ideas, and was so easy and chill to work with, a true collaborator and beautiful soul ! I would happily stay with Gerard and shoot again anytime. x" Read less

"I had a lovely first shoot with Gerard. We experimented and basically played around with light. The process was very chill, relaxed and fun. No pressure, no rush, just the pleasure of creating some (hopefully, cool) images together. I recommend Gerard for fellow creative souls!" Read less
