A native of England, Gavin began his career in London, winning five major photographic awards and gaining the coveted titles of “Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS)” and “Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography (FBIPP)” and was also featured in a BBC television documentary on Professional Photography.
