Hello, I'm Gareth Dobson, a London-based documentary photographer. You might know me through Twitter or my blog, teninchwheels. I have over 20 years experience in the imaging, publishing and design industries. I've been taking pictures for nearly 30 years.
I'm a beer fan. I've had a deep appreciation for it since way before the 'craft' revolution. I grew up to drink Timothy Taylor's superb ales in my hometown of Keighley, Yorkshire. Beer has always been a big part of my life. I know a saison from an IPA, an ambrée from a dunkel, and a mash tun from a fermenter. In short, I can draw on a specialist knowledge to get the job done without fuss.
My work has been featured in many publications including Time Out, Beeradvocate, Original Gravity Magazine, The Guardian, several travel guides and The World Atlas Of Beer.
The gear I use is low-key and unobtrusive, and my shooting style is reportage rather than a more formal studio approach. I tend to use only available light, which I believe lends a certain unique character to my images.
If you need packshots - especially bottles or cans - I have a home studio. My highly efficient workflow means images can be supplied very quickly after a shoot, and can easily be optimised for social media use.
If you'd like to discuss any projects, the best way to get hold of me in the first instance is via email. Of course, my style can be applied to many other subjects.
I always reply very quickly.
Thanks for visiting.
