||My name is Gary House, and I've been interested in photography all of my life, mainly thanks to my father, who always involved me as a child and allowed me to use his precious Canon A1. That made me want to get my own camera to experiment on, and I was given a Practica MTL5 to learn on.
In 2007 I decided to take my camera along to a Slough Town FC match, Slough are the football club I support as it was the town I grew up in.
Before I knew it I became the official photographer for the club and now take their match photos home and away for both the club and the press.
In 2014, I decided to take the leap of trust, and became a full time professional photographer mainly concentrating on sport and Slough Town, but also to use my skills in the other aspects of photography.
It also thanks to my support and affiliation with Slough Town that the name of Horsham Rebel Photography grew. Slough's club nickname is the Rebels, and during the past few years I have been living in Horsham, and before long I took my own nickname within the club of Horsham Rebel.
So when it came to deciding on a name for my photography company, it was a simple decision to make to use the name that everyone has got to know me by, and Horsham Rebel Photography was born.
During the 2011-12 football season my photos, stored in Flickr, had just over 316,000 views. This rose to just under 430,000 views in the following 2012-13 season.
Then in the 2013-14 season my photos took off in a big way with a view count of just under 2.5 million views. Currently it is looking very likely that this season's view count is going to be even larger that that !
I have had photos published in various publications, including "In the Moment" which was a Sport in Focus 2012 publication to capture the Olympic Spirit. These photos were also included in the Sport in Focus exhibition that was displayed in the run up to the 2012 London Olympic Games.
