“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.”  


― Ansel Adams

Welcome

Gillian is an international award-winning photographer who was born in Ipswich and has lived in Suffolk all her life (or most of her life). 

She studied photojournalism at the London College of Communication and also has an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art, London.


Her career started with national newspapers and magazines, The Guardian Women’s section, The Observer Magazine, The Sunday Times, FHM and the London Evening Standard, as a contributing freelance photographer from 1987 – 1995.


In 1995 she also began teaching photography A-Level in schools and colleges and discovered the joy of sharing her knowledge and experience to a younger generation.


Meanwhile she has also continued to explore photography, from her traditional film roots, through to more experimental and digital applications.


Her work and approach has evolved to become more personally expressive with a bias towards multi-media. She specialises in printing and bonding images onto alternative surfaces, influenced by a desire to be the maker of her work, in a hands-on sense.


Gillian has exhibited nationally and in Europe (view resume) and was judged as the unanimous Winner of the Sky Arts ‘Master of Photography’ contest in 2017.


In 2018, she was commissioned by PhotoEast for its biennial photography festival to create a Refugees Stories project on the theme of ‘Belonging’.


Gillian collaborated with a local refugee group to produce large scale portraits on OSB chipboard, using spray paints and encouraging the participants to hand write directly onto the artworks. See Refugee Stories 


For the future she intends to continue developing this technique and body of work, in a project with Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers.

Gillian lives in rural Suffolk with her two sons and works from her garden studio and the WaterFront studios in Ipswich.


She would be happy to discuss opportunities for commissions, teaching sessions and talks on her work and experience, feel free to make contact

Inspiration is everything you see, hear and feel. It just happens and you never know where the next spark will come from.

Engaging with new people and conducting 'through the lens' experimentation often drives that next eureka moment.
