About Gavin Smart

I’m a freelance photographer and digital assistant based in Edinburgh. Alongside my professional activities I’m currently studying towards a BA in Professional Photography at Edinburgh College. I originally trained as a classical and jazz musician at London’s Guildhall School of Music, before moving to Paris as an artisan baker, working with leading French boulangerie Eric Kayser. My photographic work is as diverse as my background, bringing together many creative elements in my work. I draw particular inspiration from the art, design and photography that I was exposed to during my time in Paris. I enjoy working with clients and businesses from all walks of life, capturing their unique stories with authenticity, sensitivity and creative flair. I am comfortable working in many different photographic situations, with a strong interest in composite production and image manipulation, although portraiture and documentary remain close to my heart.
