Gregor Forrest

Hi, I’m Gregor. I’m a music and lifestyle photographer originally from Peterborough but currently living in York. Often found shooting gigs, I aim to capture the kind of moments and interactions between band members and audience members that make live music so great – they also happen to make for some pretty awesome photos.  I really enjoy photographing people. In fact, I probably still get a bit too excited when someone tells me they like a photo I’ve taken of them. Find me on Facebook or @gregor.forrest on Instagram.
