Gingko Photography is hasting's & St Leonards photographer Georgina Cook
Hi I'm Georgie, photographer, visual story-teller & gardener.
Currently based in St Leonards On Sea, East Sussex, my professional career began as a staff photographer at a large regional newspaper in London. The experience of capturing news, entertainment and sports stories to a brief honed my love for meeting and photographing different kinds of people and places and of working with others to tell stories.
While at the newspaper, I received my first invitation to be the official wedding photographer at a colleague's wedding in the beautiful Lake District. He and his wife were really pleased with the photographs and I enjoyed it very much. Since then I have had the honour of photographing many more weddings in beautiful venues around the UK! It's a great job, full of smiles and emotion.
As a freelance photographer, my style continues to reflect the experience gained at the newspaper - I am excellent at shooting quietly and sensitively to record what's going on without getting in the way or causing distraction, yet am fully confident and able enough to command the attention of large groups as and when needed.
I have had the pleasure of working with people and businesses of all kinds and really enjoy the collaborative process. I am also known for my music, event and London related photography, for which there is a separate website - www.georginacook.net.
Increasingly my personal work is about gardens and plants of all kinds. It is this that has inspired me to offer Nature Photo Walks - offering the chance to connect with nature through photography while learning some tips from me about how best to record nature with a camera.
I’m always happy to talk to discuss your needs and tailor a package to suit your unique story, school, organisation or brand.
