Guy Buttery – Character Portraits of a soulful musician

Guy Buttery’s music makes me close my eyes and look inward. It’s dreamy, soulful, clean and clever. Watching him play is interesting, as he shuts down and moves into another land,a land where he seems to be swept away by a creative force. If meditation had a dance, and if that dance had a sound, and if that sound had a playful joyful twist,then in my opinion, that sound might just be Guy’s music.

I first met Guy about six and a bit years ago when I photographed him in his Mom’s bath. After he dried off he made us a salad with carrots, mint and leaves from the garden. He also made us laugh alot and I decided that we would be friends. Guy and I are both vegetarians so we have shared many salad since then.

Here’s a selection of images that I have taken of him over the last few years. It’s been a vibe! Love you friend.

    I love the one in the tree, and the mirror one but somehow the bath one doesn’t gel with me. you have caught the way he profoundly connects with music/sound/life. well done!

    You have captured Guy’s unique sense of soulful musicality and made it visual for us, especially in the second image, with the misty mysteriousness between him and himself.
