Hollie Gibbs is a photographer and artist who works with experimental approaches to photography.
Gibbs developed a passion for art during her secondary school studies. She enjoyed having the ability to express herself through the art she was creating, so much so that she wanted to capture these moments and share them with the rest of the world, thus developing a passion for photography. This gave Gibbs the inspiration to further her education to higher levels and gain the relevant experience and qualifications to apply herself as a working photographer.
Gibbs specialises in shooting portraits. She is keen to converse with the subjects she wishes to photograph as she feels the need for a connection between subject and photographer. By taking this approach, she feels she can photograph individuals in their most natural and candid form.
When not shooting portraits, Gibbs is also attracted to shooting landscapes and seascapes. Living on the south coast means she is more than capable of capturing breath taking views along the coast line. With unlimited access, she is fond of walking along the seafront and uses lines to her advantage, making her photographs visually dynamic.
As a recent University of Brighton graduate, she also operates on a part-time basis within a small collective of photographers called F/S Event Photography, covering events across the South East.
Being enrolled as a full-time student has not only heightened Gibbs’ confidence, but it has given her the opportunity for professional growth with the support and guidance from her tutors and peers. She has also had the chance to work closely with individuals who share similar interests and experiences, enabling her to remain inspired and motivated. Gibbs has been able to develop and maintain connections within the field through various visiting tutors she has engaged with as well as frequent visits to local galleries, exhibitions, and workshops.
She is an up and coming, hardworking, dedicated photographer, continuously learning what it takes to make it in the photographic industry.
