I'M GEMMA ESTHER, THE GIRL BEHIND THE CAMERA


You could say I'm nosey but I love finding out about people - their stories, their passions, all of it but before that.

I think it's only fair I tell you a little about me.


I'm a Mum to 4 little boys, Lucas, Owen, Ethan & Nico and an incredible wife (if I do say so myself) to my awesome husband Mark.


I love rural life on the West Coast of Scotland, with all my boys and our two cats (also boys!).


I'm in love with documenting & creating beautiful pieces of art! My biggest inspiration comes from my family and my upbringing filled with love and photo taking.


I grew up on a farm not far from where we live now & even back then, without truly realising, we were already documenting our lives together.

I actually love to dance...in the kitchen when no ones watching! Irish dancing was incredible, not sure how good I'd be now though!
