Gary Main

Gary Main has come late in to the cycling photography game after been gainfully employed in the RAF for 31 years. Always a keen photographer since his teens but it has only since he left the RAF that he found that he had the time to follow his love of photographing cycling. This after seeing the Tour De France in 1994 on a corner of a high street of Whitchurch. A dodgy photo later an idea form in his head. Move on 20 years later and the advent of digital camera gave him the tools to captures moments that tell a story in the moment of taking.

He started to make a name for himself after a chance conversation in his local bike shop asking about his future trip to Calpe to work with the Metaltek Kuota and was introduced to Dan Bigham who had accommodation there. During 2017 worked mainly in the summer with Metaltek and Team KGF in the road off season. In 2018 after the demise he was commissioned by Phil Jones of Brother to cover all Brother teams without their own photographer.

In this time, it gave him the freedom to cover other teams that did not have a photographer with Gary experience. He is a very good technical photographer but is better known for showing the person behind the helmet. A very hard working and passionate photographer who works tirelessly to ensure every photo he takes tells a story and it is a credit for the subject in his picture.

He has covered a multitude of races as diverse Worlds championships to the Melton classic and the local 10 mile time trials. His hope is that a photo of Peter Segan is just as good as a local club rider and it the person on the bike and team supporting them is the important element to any good shot.

SAINT PIRAN IN THE MEDIA

The Rohrs & Rowe and Saint Piran’s alliance was born out of a shared passion for cycling, and from Matthew and Ricci having known each other for a number of years. Cycling has been a big part of both their lives, Ricci on a professional level and Matthew purely for enjoyment.  Matthew tells us:  “A number of years ago I was fortunate enough to meet and get to know Ricci, who has been a major part of the Cornish cycling scene for decades. I’ve always loved cycling and from a young age it has enabled me to see so much of our beautiful county, whilst keeping fit at the same time! I have keenly followed the progress of Saint Piran since their launch four years ago and last year, I approached Ricci about how Rohrs & Rowe may be able to help the team. We are now delighted to be working with them in 2019. We have the obvious mutual passion for cycling but we also share the same ethos; promoting what a fantastic place Cornwall is to live and the healthy lifestyle it enables. We feel that the unique and excellent work that Saint Piran are doing perfectly reflects these benefits and we’re now very proud to be partnered with the team, helping them to achieve their goals and to attract further sponsors.”    https://www.rohrsandrowe.co.uk/blog-posts/rohrs-rowe-partnership-with-saint-piran-cornwalls-first-elite-cycling-team/
