Your Portrait in Cornwall

A portrait of Gavan Goulder, photographer at sunrise

I’m Gavan, and welcome to my favourite photography studio – Cornwall. From rugged cliffs to lagoon-like beaches, windswept moors to meandering creeks, Cornwall is the most beautiful of backdrops. Tell me your most-loved Cornish place, and that’s where we’ll take your portrait.

A Portrait Of Me.
I’ve been a portrait photographer for over 30 years, working as an editorial photographer for some of the biggest names in publishing. I bring this experience to every portrait I take - plus a huge sense of fun, a big love for Cornwall, and the promise that you’ll thoroughly enjoy having your portrait taken.

Our Portrait  Services

I currently offer four different types of portrait photography sessions, ranging from classic studio sessions to naturalistic images in wild Cornish settings. Take a look at my menu of portraits, which all come with different options.


Gav is a brilliant photographer of people. He works intuitively to reveal a truth that we might not have fully acknowledged ourselves. I’ve particularly noticed how his lens reveals the strength and power of the women he photographs. I find his images of women liberating, including those he has taken of me
Senara – Film maker
He listened to my requirements and worked with me to get the look I wanted. I would definitely recommend his services.
Corinne Detain - Artist
We’ve used Gav on a few different projects now, and every time his creativity and eye for something special have contributed to a level of professionalism we would not have achieved without him

I was made to feel at ease by Gav. The resulting photos were top quality and very natural, which is what I wanted. I would definitely work with Gav again.
