Hello and thank you for visiting Bayou West Photography. My name is Gary Taylor your photographer here in the Central Illinois area in Peoria, Illinois. My photography started out in the beautiful southern part of Louisiana in the Bayou outside of New Orleans. I have always enjoyed taking photos and capturing the beauty that surrounds us in our lives.

I'm a Midwestern, born in Peoria, Illinois who was raised by my wonderful grandparents until I joined the Navy in 1984. I served my country for almost 20 years until health conditions forced me to retire from active duty, from there I became a disabled veteran, unable to work in the real world once I got out I decided since I enjoyed photography so much it would give me something to do. I have also lived in the southern part of Louisiana where I started my photography career.

Which started out as a hobby now has grown into a passion in 2010 I got me a much better camera and started to get more serious about it. Now its been a wonderful experience meeting new people and creating images for clients to last a lifetime. I could not have done this without my family and friends. I thank you each and everyone one of you for helping me along the way.

I am a active member of the American Legion Post 100 out of Washington, Illinois, American Legion Rider President and a member of ABATE Chapter of Freedom Valley.

I have been told by many clients I am the most laid back photography they have ever worked with. I give you most comfortable settings for any shoots sessions you are interested in doing. I'm respectable and secure to work with and will ALWAYS treat my clients with respect.
