About me - your Profile Photographer

Hi! I’m Gemma, your local Profile and Commercial Photographer based in West Bridgford, Nottingham. I help people like you, stand out online by shooting eye-catching photos.

My photo shoots

I’ll work closely with you to provide the very best photo shoot experience. Hire me to capture your:

I’ve worked as a digital designer for what seems like a lifetime and always suspected that there was more to life than sitting at a desk. I realised it was people that made me tick. I get a lot of joy out of meeting new people – which was where profile photography came in!

My journey into a career as a photographer started when my niece was born. From day one, I loved capturing her personality and watching her grow while learning new photography techniques at the same time – she was the subject of most of my photos. Before I knew it, photography had become my passion – I took my camera everywhere!

Combining dating experience with photography

I got to thinking about how I could use this passion to create something worthwhile that would really make a difference to people’s lives. Who could I help with my skills? Who needed great photography more than anyone else? That’s when the penny dropped and I decided to combine my experience of online dating with my love of capturing beautiful photographs.

In 2016, Photography by Gem was born and I’ve been working with happy clients ever since.

Why book your photo shoot with me?

I take fun, flattering photos that show people at their best and make their dating and professional profiles stand out. Head over to my portfolio to see for yourself.

I truly love what I do. It’s the best job in the world and my personal online dating experience gives me a real insight into what makes a great dating profile photo. I’m determined to abolish bathroom selfies, and love working with the wonderful single people of Nottingham, Derby and the rest of the UK to do just that!

Professional profile photography will get you more dates!

Some of the photos that I came across on people’s profiles were simply awful. I remember just how frustrating it was scrolling through hundreds of profiles on the likes of Tinder and Match.com, waiting for someone to catch my eye.

Professional photos really make a difference to your online dating experience. Trust me on this!

Clients often get in touch to tell me how many more profile views, messages and dates they’re getting.

This makes me smile – a lot!
