Giles has been involved with photography and cinematography all his life, and he’s not afraid to tell you an anecdote or two!
Having studied graphic design and photography at college in the late 80’s, Giles pursued a career behind the lens, originally working as a publicity photographer in the movie business.
He soon got the movie camera bug and moved up through the ranks from Assistant to Cameraman, so he knows his stuff!
Giles has worked on many TV Commercials, Dramas and iconic feature films, including – Memphis Belle, Aliens, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and music videos for the likes of Robbie Williams, Take That, Sugababes, Spicegirls, Blur, Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys and KLF- he can also be seen in some of them, if you look really REALLY closely!
But photography has always been his passion, so Media Wisdom Photography was founded in 2000 and he's been photographing pretty much everyday ever since.

After working as a Production Co-ordinator and Production Manager in the Film & TV industry, setting up a Photography business seemed a natural progression. Who knew that all that experience and training working with Directors, Actors and Film Crews around the World, would help control Photographers when they want to go off on their own creative fancy stuff!
