Gary Austin is an award-winning street & documentary photographer based in a small village in Derbyshire UK. With a varied career over 27 years working as a freelance photographer which has ranged from photojournalism to commissioned work and personal fine art projects.
With a professional background in photojournalism and a degree in art photography, his photographic voice has evolved to be a blend of traditional documentary and street photography, an approach which allows for the subjective interpretation of the story as an artist. He has a unique personal style that produces photographs full of drama, spontaneity and natural raw emotion.
