Trevor Yerbury is a 4th generation photographer the business founded by his great grandfather in Edinburgh in 1864. Trevor was born in 1951 and joined the family business straight from boarding school in 1969. He underwent a 4-year apprenticeship where he experienced working in a daylight studio, using tungsten lighting before studio flash began to take over. In 1978 Trevor met Faye who was styling a shoot he was on and they eventually got together in 1979 have been inseparable ever since as husband and wife. With such a history in photography it is not surprising that Trevor has a keen interest in vintage printing techniques especially platinum/palladium printing, which he first experimented with back in the mid 80’s. Trevor is passionate that his work is simple and elegant with a classic, sophisticated look.
Trevor & Faye are highly respected International Chairman and Judges. The Yerburys now devote much of their time to their seminar and workshop programme, convinced that education is essential for today’s professional photographer and they are committed to providing a platform and an environment in which all levels of photographers can come together and develop their own individual creative talents.
The FUJIFILM X Series has brought about a new lease of life for me. I never liked DSLR’s having moved from medium format but when I was first introduced to the X Pro1 it immediately felt as if it fitted my hand like a warm and creative glove. The X-Pro2 combined with my much loved 56mm portrait lens is, for me the ideal combination for the images I create. I do occasionally use other lenses, the 14mm, 27mm and the new 50mm-140mm. However for the majority of my work it is the 56mm, used fairly wide open to allow a shallow depth of field.
The entire X system in a very welcome revelation and revolution for our industry.
