Gary Nicholls gary nicholls photography

Close to 60, it would be easy to think ‘I should be getting ready to retire’ but life is over far too quickly. Living every day to the full means Gary works as a sustainability consultant during the day and artist every night and weekends. It is basically two jobs. This is what it has taken to bring this project to fruition.

Gary knew what he wanted to do, just not how to do it. Experimentation and a desire to learn, took him to Glyn Dewis. A photographer – retoucher, who showed him the techniques needed to bring his work to life. What this project means to Gary, is immeasurable. If you have something inside you that you need to get out, go and do it. Don’t wait, be selfish, life will not wait for you to make your mind up.
