About Gail Ward - Photography and Projects
I am a photographer and writer based near Chichester, in the UK. My interests are 'raising awareness of the lives of others', and the world of 'Travel, Leisure and Tourism'. Assignments I've worked on and subjects I've photographed vary immensely. I am fascinated by people and love 'people stories' - always trying as much as possible to take time to form a rapport with everyone I'm trusted to photograph or write about, and not to compromise that trust, which I hope is evident in my work.
I was lucky to grow up in Anglesey, with views of the beach and beautiful mountains of Snowdonia, since when I have lived and worked in many countries, alongside different nationalities and cultures - from whom I learnt so much. This has helped me personally and professionally, and really makes a difference to my work - especially when photographing in sensitive situations.
