Hello and a BIG thank you for visiting my website

SMD Photography is basically me, Gary Summers, a professional photographer based in Leicester. All I want to do is delight my clients... not only with great photographs but also with the service that I offer.

Photography Leicester, the UK and Internationally


My drive is to take beautiful photographs for my clients and to provide a service that will build long term relationships. I am friendly and approachable and you are just as likely to find me photographing a romantic wedding as you are diggers on a building site, products in a studio or celebrities at a glamorous London venue.

I always listen to my clients’ needs and personally edit every image to ensure that the end product is as good as it possibly can be. During my career, I have had the opportunity to photograph Muhammad Ali, Sir Roger Moore and Bob Geldof; I have worked for brands like Caterpillar, Lindt Chocolates and Christie’s, and photographed on location in New York, Tuscany, Venice and London.

Clients say they like my creative style and eye for detail.  A background in graphic design and a wide grounding in commercial, wedding, portrait, PR and event photography has helped me to develop my style. I love taking striking photographs and always try to push the boundaries to achieve the perfect shot.

Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography

Booking the right wedding photographer is one of the most important part of any wedding day; you want to ensure that your special day is captured perfectly and that you have amazing photographs to look back on.
