His fine art images are typically black and white. He shoots a lot of his landscapes in the UK and considers it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but also travels extensively, finding American landscapes particularly inspiring.
His abstract colour work involves saturated colours and time slow exposures to create images in which the original subject is almost unrecognisable. Through these images, Giles explores the concept of time, using a slower exposure allows him to capture of a sequence rather than just a moment.
