Gary Hill, award-winning portrait photographer and trainer in Lancashre

UK Photographer of the Year 2021-2022
Portrait Photographer in Lancashire and International Trainer

Hi – I’m Gary Hill.

I’m a multi-award winning portrait photographer in Lancashire, with a passion for delivering timeless images of your family. Images that will become a legacy, passed on for generations.

I’ve been in the photography industry for more than a decade and in that time I’ve worked hard to become one of the best and most respected photographers in the UK, and I am regularly invited to destinations around the world to train other photographers.

When you commission me to create portraits of yourself or your family, you are choosing the best photographer to create your very own, unique artwork.

I have received many awards throughout my career, both for my photography and for training others. I have been named as Commissioned Portrait Photographer of the Year, Children’s Photographer of the Year, North-West Portrait Photographer of the Year, and been runner-up Studio Photographer of the Year twice. I’ve achieved the qualification of Master Craftsman of the Guild of Photographers, and I am a Fellow of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.

I constantly strive to improve my own work, and that of other photographers that I work with. I truly believe that improving the quality of photography available around the country, is good for everyone. Find out more about training with me, either in a workshop or as a 1:1, on my training page. 

Training for Photographers

My excitement for delivering timeless photographic portraiture to families is equalled by my passion for improving the standards of photography throughout the UK. I have won numerous awards for my images and I’m a sought-after trainer in studio lighting and portraiture. I am invited to talk at numerous photography events around the UK every year and I have a background in training. This  puts me in the perfect position to help take your work to the next level.
