About Garth

I'm looking to create strong creative partnerships that allow me to push myself, bring out my strengths, produce content that achieves our intended outcomes and make a difference.

I have a strong eye for detail this is shown in my work and The roles I take on. Photography, Art Direction & Production Design are the areas that I have found allow me to play to my strengths.

Let's create a partnership where we produce content that makes a difference.

Life begins in the blurry bits, the areas you're not paying attention to.
