Lorentz Gullachsen

Advertising, Commercial, Art & Portrait photographer and content producer based near Stratford on Avon,Warwickshire. Working across the UK especially in Warwickshire , West Midlands, Cotswolds, Coventry & Birmingham. Producing Marketing and Communication photography is also a way my work is described but at the end of the day images and video I produce are commercial. Professional photography is a very difficult business to find yourself, but been a photographer is easy ? Since smart phones and the digital revolution the creation of photographic images is just about point and shoot. however photography with depth and meaning is as always more than just the capture of an image.
