Hi, I'm Oliver. I'm a photographer. It's my job and my passion. As a former abstract painter with over 10 years experience in commercial photography, I have had plenty of practice using my creative approach to fulfill a brief. It takes a certain attitude to make this work and I relish the task. Every shoot is different, which means I'm always learning and refining what I do.
I'm based between London and Margate (Kent), but work globally.
My name is Gavin Crilly and I have been working as a professional photographer for nearly 30 years covering press, PR and corporate photography in London and the South West of England including Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham and Gloucester.
I first started as a portrait photographer in Selfridges on Oxford Street in the mid 1980's moving on to newspapers and magazines holding staff and freelance positions covering news sport and features for both news agencies and daily papers with pictures being syndicated world wide.
After 25+ years working out of London shooting around the world for various ad agencies having a lot of fun doing it and picking up a few awards along the way, I relocated to South Africa buying a house in Cape Town. For those of you who've never been here, the light quality is astounding and the variety of landscapes mind boggling - everything from a Nordic pine forest to the Scottish Highlands, from the Salisbury Plains to Nevada deserts. Urban streets to country lanes and highways. Plus, every type of beach you could wish for.
A camera geek and dedicated commercial photographer.
I appreciate design in all it's forms, from the elegance of a Louboutin to the monolithic architecture of a Land Rover, from a textural edible temptation to the jewellery of a glistening brandy glass. Design and imagery excite me and drive my passion to create beautiful images in digital and print formats that my clients will adore.
My work includes commercial, corporate and editorial assignments.
I especially shoot a lot of portraits, mostly of people at their most relaxed and natural. I can communicate effectively with anyone with whom I have a language in common and with many with whom I don’t.
My clients include creative and communications agencies, large corporations, magazines, entrepreneurs and entertainers.
I discovered my love of this medium while studying in New York, a skill I nurtured at university, and practice continued within a first career in the Royal Navy.
My creative journey has since led me to hone in on three genres, adventure, fashion and portraiture and have since become an accredited member of the Association of Photographers and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
I am a documentary portrait photographer looking into niche groups and subcultures that are often overlooked. I use subtle lighting techniques to bring a scene to life, to portray people as they are, in their moment.
