My Story

I am Gail Secker, a Manchester based photographer who is truly passionate about creating beautiful images for my clients.  Since graduating from Manchester University with a degree in Design for Communication Media (specialising in Illustration) I have dedicated myself to this pursuit, spending my early professional career as an illustrator working for such well known publishers as Bloomsbury (click here and here), Barefoot Books (click here), Macmillan Penguin and Lion (click here). I have considerable experience working with clients from concept through to completion and pride myself on a determination to successfully realise the clients brief to the fullest of their satisfaction. Examples of my work can be found under my maiden name of Gail Newey.

My philosophy with my photography  is to listen to and respond to a client’s needs and adopt a flexible approach; I understand some commissions require a more organic approach. I bring a considerable knowledge of composition , light and post editing.....

My client list is growing, from architecture and interior commissions to family portraits, to activity website photos to corporate headshots, you name it I can photograph it. Through all these diverse projects there remains one common goal...to produce beautiful images.
