Videographer / Photographer / Editor
My Name is Michael Gately AKA: MickGProduction. I am 25 year-old videographer from Ireland with a passion for art, creative, and cultural events. I started in video production as a reminder to myself durning dark times how beautiful the world can be. It began as just a side hobby where I could express how I was feeling or what I personally wanted to see. The more I learnt about the opportunities avaliable to capture different events and projects, the more the hobby turned into a career path.
I am currently working as a Full Time Editor with Dexerto Media. And hold a First Honour Degree in Television from Napier University. My goal is to travel the world documenting cultures, esports, talents, and show the true beauty of the world through a lens. In all of my work, I try to capture raw and important moments from the victories to the falls for various brands. For me, it is not about who you shoot for or how big the shoot is. It is about creating a piece that can be looked back on by many as a remembrance to the event that took place.
Over the last year in esports, I have been able to complete many creative projects, from welcoming players to organisations with history to shooting a documentary in a completely different language. Not only have I focused on my skillset but I have successfully built a community. I stream, interact with the people from around the world and launched my own clothing brand which held great success and supports Mental Health.
My aims include inspiring people to use their creative ability for the better, and promoting that the world is not all bad. I also aspire to ensure that special moments in one life are documented to the best standard possible that with time people can share with their children and families.
I live by one motto and I stand by it in all work I do - "Make Moments Unforgettable"

Beyond The Mind - 2021
I created Beyond The Mind as a method of living, that if you push the boundaries of what you believe and think you can accomplish anything and everything you wish to do so. It is about setting yourself different from the crowd and using what brought you down to bring you forward. To think outside the box and find the positives when things look negative. Beyond The Mind was created by me in partnership with DLClothing. As BTM was made for mental health awarness I have decided that my profits would be shared 50/50 with Charities working in Mental Health matters such as MindUK and Samaritans.
