About me

Gaya M Gajewska
Hi! thanks for stopping by.

I’m Gaya. Capturing beauty through the frame of a lens is my thing – it may sound corny but I grew up with a camera in my hand.

My Polish roots meant in the early days it was an old manual Russian SLR, which I literally took everywhere (much to my mum’s dismay). The more I photographed the more I realised that what lit up my lens was capturing personalities and emotions through portraiture.

I promise I have upgraded my equipment and while things in my life have certainly shifted – I now live in leafy Oxford with a tech geek – what has not changed is that I always have a camera in my hand. And I still see things through frames.

I am fun, creative but professional. And so is my photography. Capturing memories and life’s little intricacies is what I am about.

In my second life I am a professional web and print designer, where every day I play with colour, composition and form, which has only strengthened my photographic technique.

What is so important to me is getting people to feel comfortable, so in many ways I see my clients as friends. Drawing out personalities through creative and inspiring images is where I get my satisfaction – finding their perfect angle, capturing significant details and real moments in real-time is what I strive for.

I have a relaxed, modern style through which I give a refreshing edge to classic shots and those unexpected highlights.

Reportage or photojournalism call it what you will – what I do is create a story of your big moment or special day always with a smile that makes its way on to the frame.
