New Guild member Trevor Ray Hart is a commercial photographer based in Gloucestershire, who says he aims to ensure his work has an authentic feel that captures spontaneous and fleeting moments of people and places.
“Many of my most successful images are often found framed against the backdrop of the British countryside,” he says. “Having had many years of experience producing work for a variety of advertising and editorial commissioners, I believe I’m a capable and creative photographer who can supply professional quality imagery that answers a variety of client briefs.”
He decided to join the Guild in the hope of connecting with companies and marketing and branding specialists operating in the rural sector.
Trevor says he enjoys the creative process of working within a team or producing commissions working alone, and the examples of prestigious clients he lists is certainly testimony to his work.
They include the Royal Horticultural Society, National Trust, Natural England and The Wildlife Trust, South West Railway, Lego, British Gas, Santander, Capital One, Nationwide, Nescafé, T-Mobile, Barclays Bank, Vodafone and Clydesdale Bank.
Plenty of example images from commissions and projects are shown on Trevor’s website, from where he sells limited edition prints.
When not wielding his camera, Trevor identifies keeping fit for his work by running, open water swimming and cycling as his principal interest beyond photography.
