Simon Holliday

Music Photography

I got involved in music photography through my love of the thriving music scene in Bristol, especially the smaller independent venues.

As well as documenting live shows, I collaborate with artists and bands to produce original and distinctive promo photos and release artwork.

My music work was featured heavily in the Bristol Music: Seven Decades of Sound exhibition in 2018.

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