Fashion editorial photographed for Solstice Magazine

My name is Holly McGlynn. I’m from Dublin, live in London and I’m a fashion photographer. I have an MA in photography from Goldsmith's and was shortlisted for Irish Fashion Photographer of the Year 2014 and 2015.

For me, photography is all about telling a story. I like to weave a narrative into the shoot, an imagined life or adventure; a temporary escapism. I’m obsessed with matching colours and textures, finding backgrounds that match the colour of the clothes, surfaces that match their texture, that’s always my starting point. Above all else, I keep a sense of fun in my work, even when shooting something serious, a playfulness will emerge somewhere, perhaps only captured in a fleeting moment of movement. Having fun is part of my process, lots of laughter on set is very important and productive!

I always want to collaborate with clients who are as passionate about creating exciting, story-telling imagery as I am. Let’s shoot something wild and beautiful and put it on a billboard.

Clients include Levi's, Kate Spade New York, Glamour Magazine, Karen Millen, Mulberry and many more.
