My name is Gerald Perey and I am based in London, United Kingdom. My background is in Building Services Engineering where I have developed a career in the lighting design industry.
Photography has always been an interest of mine, but I have never truly pursued it... until now. Through this journey, I have learned a lot and developed my photography skills. I have become committed to this craft and I am working to be the best that I can be.
I am hopeful that my work could eventually inspire other photographers the same way I have been inspired by my peers. My background did not have any elements of photography. I was self-taught and learned through experience. I have been particularly inspired by fellow photographers who followed a similar path.
I have a passion to travel and my primary inspiration in my photography is from seeing the world and experiencing different cultures. I am particularly keen to explore the regions of South East Asia. Japan is right up there as one of the most culture rich and beautiful places I have visited. It is a dream of mine to return and visit other regions I have not yet travelled to.
Having said that, with my line of professional work, I do not get to travel as much as I would like. This leads me to pursue my other passion, which lies in street photography – the beauty in the everyday, which often gets overlooked in the hustle and bustle of modern life.
