Gavin Bowyer – Fine Art & Portraiture 2022

I have been a photographer for 20 years and specialise in portraits of humans and animals. My strapline is ‘Pictures with personality’ as everything I do is all about the characters of the families, pets, and businesses I photograph. Every shoot is different and unique and celebrates what is special about my subjects, to create bespoke art pieces for their home or workplace.

I work outdoors, in stunning locations that people already love to go to, whether it’s the Roaches or somewhere special with lots of memories for them. I love working in all the different seasons and with natural light, primarily for atmosphere.

I have a BA (Hons) in Visual Art and my photographs are presented as art pieces using gallery grade prints and products. I’m really inspired by different genres of art, though album covers are my favourite for style and atmosphere. I’m really passionate about celebrating people’s stories through my work. This has led me to do a project based on the heartwarming stories of rescue animals, how their lives, and those of their new owners have been enriched. I hope these stories help people to consider rehoming a pet.
