Guy's passion for photography was sparked in boyhood when his dad bought him a 35mm camera. Guy reflects; "he was probably fed-up with me messing around with his Leica!"

 

Set on turning his hobby into a career, Guy studied photography at school and then Bournemouth and Poole College of Art & Design. Next stop was a Professional Media Degree at the University of Gloucestershire. There, Guy completed a degree in photography, graphics, film and television.

 

Guy's practical experience accelerated upon graduation as he worked as an assistant at Bigshots Studios, learning from some of the very best in the business - Richard Adams, Peter Davis, Steve Jukes, James Callaghan and Jon Cox. Guy spent five years in the role, honing his skills while delivering for a client list headlined by Land Rover, Jaguar, Honda and Toyota.

 

His apprenticeship complete, Guy created Guy Dixon Photography and struck out on his own in 2004. A busy, globe-travelling decade has followed and his work has yielded regular high-profile clients like Toyota, Lexus and JCB.

 

Guy is highly accomplished in automobile photography and 360 HDRI photography. He's delivered international projects for multinational corporations, working across the world. His photography has been showcased across brochures, magazines and billboards. He’s been instrumental in the design of new studios and is a skilled retoucher.

 

Away from work, Guy enjoys time with his wife and two kids - bolstering the family album as he goes! He does ditch the camera - for a short time - to partake in cycling, snowboarding and surfing. Guy is based in Cheltenham, UK.
