Gary Grealy has established himself over many years

as an advertising and portrait photographer in Sydney.

Work has been commissioned by leading advertising

agencies, major national and international clients.

Gary's art work is in the collection of the National

Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery.

For seven years of the eight year history of the

National Photographic Portrait Prize at the National

Portrait Gallery Gary's work has been exhibited as a finalist.

In 2009 he was named as highly commended runner

up with a portrait of Sydney gallery owners Geoffrey

Legge and Frank Watters.

In 2011 the Geoffrey Legge and Frank Watters

portrait was added to the permanent collection of the

National Portrait Gallery.




Again in 2012 Gary's work was exhibited in the

National Portrait Gallery with his portrait of former

NSW Art Gallery Director Edmund Capon. In the

same year Gary's work was also exhibited in the

2012 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize.

2013 saw the Edmund Capon portrait added to the

collection of the National Portrait Gallery. 

In each following year Gary’s portraits have been

exhibited in the NPG including 2015 with a portrait

of Mother and daughter artists Ann and Sophie Cape.

During 2014 Gary was commissioned by the National

Portrait Gallery to make a work of Australian Rugby

Union legend 'Ken Cathpole'. This work was made

possible by the philanthropy of Patrick Corrigan.

In May 2015 the Mosman Art Gallery exhibited

Gary’s work in an exhibition titled  Art-Maker, Patron, Lover.
