Simon Holliday

Photography

I produce original and distinctive portraits and band/artist promo photos, as well as photographing the exciting live music scene in Bristol, various documentary projects, and some street photography too.

I work with a variety of cameras and I shoot both digital and film, from a 1955 Rolleiflex medium format, to a £1 charity shop 35mm camera, and DSLR, mirrorless and mobile phone.

I'm available for portrait and promo commissions, get in touch!

Main sections: Portraits, Music, Documentary, Street, Places
