Photography comes from an old Greek word and means “drawing with light”.
Gary Schmid is an international acclaimed photographer, originally from Austria based currently in Dubai. Beside being one of the leading luxury hotel photographer his passion is art since the early years in photography. Creating surreal images already over 25 years back still in the darkroom. Newer days digital manipulating gives a wider perspective even to his imagination. Still he prefers sometimes simplicity of creating abstract images without digital enhancement. The ideal balance to the controlled perfectionist world of his commercial work. He has the Craftsman’s Master Certificate in Photography and had several exhibitions in the UAE and various publications in international magazines. As Gary Schmid says: “I like forms and shapes, lights and shadows, different perspectives, hence photography is a perfect tool to showcase my creative thoughts.
