Hello, I'm Bill Gidda. I'm a professional London photographer at EyeMedia Studios. I believe that great creativity often is the result of team effort and working closely with my clients. I love to help my clients get professional photos taken at our London studio. I also have many years of experience with location shoots but mainly photograph indoor studio photo shoots.
A little bit more about me
I was born in Derby, England but moved to Toronto, Canada at the age of five where I grew up.
I started photography when I was 12, but at the time I didn’t realise I was going to be a photographer let alone a professional London photographer. I have always had the power to see beauty, ever since I was a kid. I knew I wanted to do something related to art and express my creativity and I feel fortunate because my hobby is my profession now.
Picking up a camera gives me an opportunity to share my vision with others. The beauty of photography is a well-captured image represents a brief moment in time that lives on forever. That’s enough of a reason for me to hang a camera around my neck wherever I go.
I studied photography at the Faculty of Arts at Humber College after graduating from high school. While working in Toronto Canada, I have photographed for many commercial clients before moving back to London, England in the year 2000. Since moving to London, my style (photography) has changed for the better.
Talking about style, I love natural light photography! I need to thank many photographers who gave me the inspiration for this delightful new (or old) way of photography. That’s why when I was looking to set up my photography studio in London, I made sure that the studio had huge windows so I could photograph my clients with nothing but daylight. I also do studio photo shoots using flash, but when given a chance, nothing beats natural light portraits.
I specialise in modern portrait photography with a hint of classic old school vibe. I love to take pictures of people & make them feel relaxed throughout their photo shoot like we’ve been friends for years. My goal when photographing my clients is to show the beauty, strength and enthusiasm of people by taking professional pictures for them.
I always shoot in RAW and manual mode. All of my post-processing is done in both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. As an artist, the biggest favour I ever did myself was stopped comparing my work to that of others and concentrate on my vision.
What I can Offer
I am a professional photographer with a unique artistic style and a love candid captures! I specialise in portraits for small businesses and individuals who want something unique that tells their story. I also have many years of experience shooting for commercial clients in fashion and music photography. So if you are looking to get professional photos taken for an updated Linkedin profile photo or something for your social media profiles, don’t be afraid to ask me for something outside of the box!
