Gary is a highly professional photographer who is capable of capturing the essence of a band very successfully across a wide range of settings. Winter Storm have always used Gary for photography and his work has always been of the highest quality. He is one of the best photographers we know. Keep up the great work!

Just a quick message for you.... in relation to our latest shoot together.
As you well know, my career in the modelling industry has recently taken a giant leap..... no less for the inclusion of some very gifted photographers! YET.... I attribute this ascension, for the most part, to YOU sir!... And this is my reasoning behind such judgement:
Firstly..... & most importantly.... I find you extremely approachable. Never have I felt ridiculed or awkward in asking you to attempt to convey my most artistic desires!
Secondly.... You always seem to place a different perspective on your model's request. Not to say you try to sway their original idea.... merely accentuating & improving it, in order to achieve the better shot!
These little consultations are paramount in attaining the perfect relationship between model & 'Tog'.... & I for one am most happy with the attention you portray in this aspect of your business.
Thirdly..... Your professionalism shines through at all times.
A shoot shouldn't last forever & you have the deftness to capture the images in as little time as you need..... Happy, smiley model = great photographs!
Fourthly..... Your editing & aftercare are both swift & efficient.
Everytime we have worked together, the final images have always been MY choice..... some direction may be asked for... but ultimately, you treat the recipient with the utmost respect.
All in all Gary, I have to say, that I really enjoy working with you.... & will always want to on future projects. Your work ROCKS..... & in turn.... you make me look good... & feel good

I have been fortunate enough to work with Strong Arm Photography on a number of occasions.
I have had Photo Shoots for my Clothing Business – Redux Designs – where I left the whole sessions up to Gary. He chose models, locations and themes, and the results were staggering.
On another occasion, Gary photographed the legendary 80’s post punk band Theatre Of Hate. Time constraints meant Gary had a narrow time frame to work with due to work commitments for the band. And again, the results were stunning and will be used for an upcoming Tour and Promotional use in 2014. We are also looking at further shoots for the front man Kirk Brandon, hoping to devote a 2 or 3 hour themed Photo Shoot sometime later this year.
Why did I choose Strong Arm Photography from all the other photographers that I know? Gary can identify the unseen. What the simple man in the street will walk past, Gary will turn in to art. And when I say art, I mean, art.
Personally, I hold Gary in high esteem. He is to me, the greatest undiscovered photographer of modern times. If you doubt me, check out his gallery. His recent video work is skilled and creative. As a person, he is quite simply, an enigmatic and unassuming gentleman. If you want the personal edge with a professional result, Strong Arm Photography win hands down.

To any person planning on getting shots for any occasion I can not recommend Gary Moore of Strong arm enough. I have had the distinct pleasure of working with this talented professional on a number of occasions and have never been less than ecstatic when receiving my shots. Gary is a passionate individual who ensures not only are you comfortable working with him but also that you are part of a team and respected as a model. The work he produces is visually dynamic and unique and this is down to his ability to go above and beyond on your shoot, he has an eye for the perfect locations and for what works for each model. Every shoot is different and exciting and the experience is always an enjoyable one. Overall his work speaks for itself and I feel honoured to be captured in art by this incredible photographer.
Burbo K'ture 2014
I have collaborated with Gary Moore / Strong Arm photography on a number of occasions for shoots of my work as a designer.
Whether shooting High fashion photography, runway or live music artists, Gary will find a way to be inventive with his surroundings and what is available at the time and location. Whether it be props, lighting, angles etc, Gary will find an unusual and inventive way to present the subject/s whilst still keeping a firm eye on any brief or ideas the designer / subject / artist wants to purvey.
A perfect collaborator and a real artist.
At the point of putting together my A/W 14-15 COLLECTION, Gary Moore is the only photographer I will trust with capturing the essence of my creations.

Hi, I have had the pleasure of working with Gary twice now and may I say both times were fabulous,he made me feel relaxed,special and his attention to detail and flair brings the best out of you, it really does! he puts you straight at ease and nothing is to much trouble,with a warm lovely approach and listens to your needs.
Gary is very passionate and great at his craft,i had a fun and exciting time working with him, thank you Gary you are a star xx
Gary Moore is one of the most talented, friendliest, creative and amazing photographers, that I have had the pleasure of working with on two separate occasions so far. He brings the best out in his subjects choosing appropriate locations to suit the theme. The first shoot I did with him, I was extremely tense but Gary worked his magic putting me at ease and it ended up turning into a fun shoot. His work is outstanding and he always challenges himself into raising the bar higher. He knows what he wants from all of all of his models and subjects and delivers every time. I am looking forward to working with again very soon..
We had an artistic arrangement for an idea with Gary regarding a devil photo shoot.
Gary is a great listener to ideas and implements any that you put across. I really enjoyed the recce for location. Ideas flowed from Gary. Timing, lighting etc. Gary is thorough and will look at legalities etc. He found another location and did an amazing set of photographs, his direction was perfection and I was in awe and gobsmacked by what he sent me.
I will definately work with this talented artist again.

"Our first shoot is still a beautiful blur in my memory. To just switch on that much energy and character is a rare and dangerous thing." – Lisa
"I was nervous about doing a photo shoot as I'd never done anything like that before. Gary instantly put me at ease. With his expert direction, I ended up with a set of beautiful pictures. Gave me a real lift and a confidence boost. - just what I needed. Highly recommended."
I have worked alongside Gary Moore on many of his projects and always felt him to be professional and 100% dedicated to getting the best results! I have modelled for him several times and also used his excellent skills on a two day film festival I ran plus a video shoot I helped organise. The feed back I have had on both personal projects and things I have assisted him in has always been the highest of praise! I certainly will be using Strongarm for my own future projects and given the level of interest from friends and colleagues I am sure that very soon he will be a very sought after photographer.

Working With StrongArmPhotography for our band photoshoot was amazing. Gary was really professional and directed us in such a way that we got some really amazing promo shots that we were all extremely happy with. He made us all feel at ease and after discussing the mood we were going for he set up the location which matched it perfectly. He also edited the photographs and got them back to us super quick. I would definitely recommend Him to any one that wants edgy, professional photographs. Many thanks Gary!!
Gary is an artist in every sense of the word. He works with a creative freedom that not only makes it a pleasure to work with him, but also makes intense and interesting work. He has a keen ability to balance the opinions and wants of his clients whilst not compromising his distinctive photography style. Gary is an artist that truly can see the potential in any situation and knows how to help those around him seize it! He is both light and dark humoured and this is reflected in the excellent and unique quality of his work. Gary Moore is somebody I trust completely when it comes to creating photography. He has a depth, professionalism and fun nature that makes every shoot unique world of its own.

We chose Gary to do our steampunk wedding photography, as we liked his style very much. We had a pre wedding portrait shoot as Charlie was nervous of having her picture taken. He was patient and a fun person to have a shoot with. The wedding was held in Wookey Hole caves, we knew Gary would be ideal as he is used to working in low light levels. We particularly liked the book that he produced, it told a story of the day with a real variety of images that captured the essence of the day. We highly recommend.
I had the pleasure of shooting my acro act with @strongarm100_ last week. In between runs he took some stills and captured this. I'm not sure if there has ever been a photo taken that makes me look so hard and so vulnerable at the same time. Sometimes I feel self conscious of the size of my upper body. When I started doing circus I got really muscular really fast and I felt bulky and masculine. I know I'm healthy and I know I'm strong. But sometimes, in the back of my lady lizard brain, I just want to look dainty, ya know? This photo doesn't make me feel that way. This photo makes me proud of my python arms. Thank you Gary for a wonderful night and a great photo.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of being photographed by Mr Gary Moore. As a complete and utter camera phobe I was a nervous wreck but from the off Gary put me completely at my ease with patience and humour. What started out as my worst nightmare became one of the best experiences of my life. Gary Moore knows his craft so well and treats his subjects with encouragement and kindness, don't take my word for it just look at the art he has created with many others Julie Hughes, Rupert Bell and Theresa Helene Bach to name a few. The time with him flew by and at the end I felt completely relaxed. Not only is Gary a fantastic photographer but a lovely, lovely man who I would unreservedly recommend for anyone who wants a unique experience with a master of the art of photography.
