Photography Services

Rory Garforth ( is  a Photographer from Barnsley, South Yorkshire. With a passion for landscape photography and the great outdoors, his images are influenced by both his background and interests in travel and the environment.

Over time I’ve devloped a preference for black & white over colour and natural light and locations over a studio. My work is produced digitally and on film.

Born and raised in South Yorkshire, the work showcases the best of this county, as well as covering much of the UK and Europe. With the Pennines and North Yorkshire right on the doorstep, he draws inspiration from this gorgeous part of the country and from the people he meets. He has explored many styles over the years, Macro, Portrait, Street and Commercial but his heart always goes back to Landscape photography.

He has exhibited in local galleries and featured in Digital Photographer and Digital SLR User magazines. His work has also been used at various musical events both as projections and for publicity materials. More recently he has produced works for local companies, private individuals, musicians (live & promo) and museums.


A certain amount of technical knowledge is needed to get the best out of your equipment but don’t worry I am a proponent of the  Keep ISimple theory.

Lessons can include all aspects of digital photography including software, I use Adobe Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6 plus various plug-ins.  I am a keen user of social networking including photo sharing sites and can show you how to best get your images onto the web.
