SMD Photography – for creative professional photography in Leicester, the UK and beyond

Thank you for visiting my website. SMD Photography is basically me, Gary Summers, a professional photographer based in South Leicestershire.

I always do my utmost 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 ideas 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 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 a unique style. I love taking striking photographs and always try to push the boundaries to achieve the perfect shot.

Whilst SMD Photography is based in Leicester, I regularly travel all across the UK and abroad for clients. If you would like to discuss your photographic requirements, please complete the enquiry form or give me a call on 0116 279 3256.
