Having studied graphic design and
photography at college in the late 80ʹs, Giles pursued a career behind the lens,originally working as an assistant then publicity photographer in the movie business.
He soon got the movie camera bug, and followed the old school way of training and moving up through the ranks from Assistant to Cameraman in the movie industry.
Giles has worked on many TV Commercials, Dramas and iconic feature films, including – Memphis Belle, Aliens, Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves, and music videos for Robbie Williams, Take That, Spicegirls, Blur, Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys and KLF – he can also be seen in some of them, if you look really REALLY closely!
After over 20 years in the film industry, Giles went back to his first love – photography, and set up his commercial photographic company, Media Wisdom, 11 years ago.
Over the years, Giles has won numerous International Photographic Awards, and is constantly being acknowledged for the high quality of his photography and knowledge of lighting.
In 2003 Giles was commissioned to create an ongoing selection of original photographic artwork for the Loch Fyne group of fish restaurants around the UK. This was quickly followed by a commission for the private dining rooms at Brasserie Blanc, Bristol, for Raymond Blanc.
His collection of Coastal themed images is a combination of some of his favourite landscape images from around the UK. Some of which have not been seen before.
