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.
