Simon Holliday

I'm a photographer living in Bristol, UK, where I mostly photograph people — portraits, documentary photography, musicians and gigs.

I create original and distinctive portraits and promo photos, as well as documenting the vibrant Bristol music scene, alongside other documentary photography, and capturing random street scenes.

Get in touch if you'd like to work with me!
