“My way of doing things is a little different - it’s relaxed and laid back, but never short of direction. More than anything, I want to capture the essence of who you are as a couple, and this takes careful facilitation on many levels. I’m well aware that people get nervous in front of a camera so I do my best to work instinctively, shoot very fast, and facilitate a circumstance that is going to feel most authentic to you. If it’s authentic then we aren’t faking anything and the pictures will be better because of it.”

A

As a visual artist Glen has the rare ability to find breathtaking images in moments and subjects that are entirely unposed and uncontrived. Founded on a rapid eye for absorbing spontaneous events and a love for intricate light and shadow, he has a track record for creating simple, timeless, iconic photographs. He believes that beauty is found in things imperfect - sometimes blurred, sometimes grainy, not often straight - but always emotive, always real, and always oozing with atmosphere.

His calm confidence and over 10 years experience shooting weddings is a bride & groom’s best friend on a day that is often far from tranquil. “Weddings are the perfect puzzle of elements - people looking their absolute best, immaculate details, heartfelt moments. Steeped in tradition each wedding comes with a similar set of rules and structure, but crucially every wedding also comes with a major wild card - YOU. You’re the ones getting married, and you’re the ones who make your day perfectly unique. To tell your story in the most intimate, beautiful way I have to keep on my toes. I am present. I listen. I anticipate what’s coming next. There’s no off-switch. As the photographer in the room I have to be completely aware of everything at all times, senses alive, ready for anything. I think it’s this joy of being in the moment and the purity of telling other people’s stories, not imposing my own ideas, that has kept me intrigued all these years.”

Authenticity is key

Before coming to New York, Glen made a name for himself as a photographer in Sydney, Australia. His range of clients is diverse & varied, all tied together by a love of beautiful authentic photography. From fashion campaigns on the streets of Italy, to breathtaking dinners in private estates to timeless black and white portraits backstage at Victoria’s Secret. The diversity of his subjects and locations belies the assured consistency with which Glen articulates any atmosphere in front of his lens.

Favorite part of the wedding day?

If there's a chance to steal the couple away and shoot them alone, that's the best. I love capturing those unique moments that beautifully personify the couple.
