For the last ten years Gavin has worked as a free lance photographer, first based in Ireland, then Paris, now Seoul since 2013.
Commissions include fashion, portrait, and reportage, with a heavy emphasis on traditional B/W printing and a personal approach to subject matter.
Gavin participated in the January 2011 MediaStorm Methodology Workshop
. He had the following to say about his experience:
I learned so much during the MediaStorm Methodology Workshop, January 2011, that it has taken me a good week to digest it all. Well worth the tuition fees and traveling over from Paris. Everything said was so relevant to my work as a freelance photographer. My only wish was that I knew it all earlier! Not only was it an excellent overview of the development of multimedia storytelling, past, present, and future, but also an inside view to how a top end multimedia company works. I enjoyed the break down of their stories, listening to the group's questions and answers, hearing from all the staff one by one as they explained their craft. Everybody had something to offer and it was offered freely. Clear thinking, clear presentation. A very personal atmosphere where creativity and exchange were encouraged...and obviously flourished. It's sure that I will stay in contact with MediaStorm and the seven other participants of the workshop. I feel lucky to have had this experience, to have met everybody that I did, simple as that.
