Who is SiColgan

Simon Colgan was born in 1967 in Cornwall. He has had a passion for photography from a very young age, but it wasn't until he was in his late 30's that he had the opportunity to study, and turn it into a career.

At the core of his photography lies a deep rooted interest in capturing something real, some sort of self. From pets to people, they all have a character, and that's what he strives to draw out. He states, "It is very hard to capture a 'certain truth' in a portrait as one can only capture what the subject is willing to give away". That's how he ended up shooting pets as they hide nothing.

Within his work, he has photographed artists, tradesmen, celebrities, writers, and many more, every one is different from the last. He considers portraiture to be the one branch of photography that requires trust and interaction. He also has a very creative mind and is happy to discuss any ideas you may have for a specific shoot.

He also teaches photography and photoshop in colleges, and works in the Institute of Photography at Falmouth University. He is available over the summer months to teach or run workshops in the public domain. To book, contact him. He also repairs old damaged photographs and creates Artworks that he sells privately.
