Meet the Fixation | Wex Sales Team

Greg - Retail Manager

Greg

Retail Manager

Greg has been working in the industry for the best part of a decade, having worked for Calumet Photographic and Wex Photo Video prior to joining the team at Fixation as Retail Manager. He previously shot with Canon and Sony, and has now made the change over to Fujifilm specialising in musicians portraiture and landscape photography. Greg is also a keen Saxophonist in his spare time, having studied Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music in a previous life, before finding his calling in photography. His claim to fame is that he once performed for the Queen in Manchester Victoria train station!
Mike - Senior Sales

Mike

Senior Sales

Mike “Child of the 60s” McNamara has worked on Fixation’s sales desk for thirteen years, but his career in photography started decades earlier and he claims to have spent most of his life with a camera in hand. He’s certainly familiar with both sides of the business, starting as a studio photographer in the early seventies, before going on to work for Wallace Heaton, Fox Talbot and Leeds Photovisual in the early eighties. He reckons one of the best things about working in the industry is that photographers are characters in themselves and like nothing more than talking and imbibing to a professional level; after a recent awards show he found himself in Harrow. (NB. He doesn’t live in Harrow). He still enjoys taking pictures, especially as the new wave of mirrorless cameras means they’re easier to cart around.
Nathan - Account Manager | B2B

Nathan

He always carries a camera, has shot stock for travel picture libraries, weddings, landscapes, and enjoys street photography. He will often make time to shoot with other photographers to gain a better understanding of their field within the industry. While the rest of us enjoy a quiet weekend Nathan often cycling huge distances on and off road. He is also a reliable part of the Fixation peloton riding to and from our showroom and workshop in London.
