Biography

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.

Faye while she assisted Tre­vor for the first few years, even­tu­ally grew frus­trated that she could see images, but did not have the abil­ity to cap­ture them. Tre­vor bought Faye a cam­era and since then she has become one of the UK’s finest pho­to­graph­ers of the Fine Art Nude and a true post pro­duc­tion expert.

Togeth­er Tre­vor & Faye travel the world cre­at­ing stun­ning images for both pub­lic and private col­lec­tions.
