"I love that I'm able to capture emotions and tell stories through the medium of photography". James Gentle
Gentle Visions caters to individuals looking for an authentic photographic service, that captures experience, emotion and tells a story, be it for work or pleasure.
Common to all the photographic services we offer are:
1. Taking the time to listen and understand what you are about and want to convey or capture. The first tool in my kit bag is a note book and pen!
2. Using unique and authentic photographs to tell a visual narrative.
3. Working in an easy going and unobtrusive way to capture natural and candid images.
You'll find an outline of my services further down the page, but first let me introduce myself..
My story as a lifestyle photographer
I'm James Gentle the sole proprietor of Gentle Visions Photography.
My photographic journey started when my granny gave me her box brownie Instamatic camera. I soon became the unofficial family photographer capturing our special moments together such holidays in Cornwall and our much loved pet dog. I progressed to my first SLR camera in secondary school and my first commission was taking the school house photographs.
I'm a very visual person and the discovery of photography has enabled me to express my creative side. As I see it the camera is a great tool, but it's my eye that I have to thank for the compliments I receive about my photographic work.
I'm passionate about capturing images that people relate to and love

A quick introduction to my photography services

We help by creating wonderful images to convey your brand message. We will support you to help define and create visual assets that convey your unique message, drawing on both my marketing and photographic experience as part of a collaborative process. We'll then go on to take the shots of you, your products and or your events.
We capture you and those you love, doing what you enjoy at your favourite places. 'Family' of course in the broadest sense of the word from extended family, pets, friends, club groups. I personally love the great outdoors, am not afraid of mud and am very much about getting out there and capturing the action.
We don't do formal studio portrait photography - everything is done on location. It does not have to be outside of course. The kitchen or heart of the home often makes a great spot for informal lifestyle photography.
Gentle Visions has worked for many years with performers and schools to capture performance in action. There is nothing like the real thing and I've personally spent many hours perfecting the art of stealth live performance photography.
Gentle Visions offer natural, often called reportage style photography or weddings and other special events and celebrations. We work around you to capture candid shots of your event or party as it unfolds, the details, the people and the shared experience.
If you've a different story to tell and like the sound of the Gentle Visions approach and style, then it would be a pleasure to hear from you.
