portrait of commercial and branding photographer Olivia Brabbs

Welcome to my blog

I am a commercial, editorial and advertising photographer working across Yorkshire and the UK.  I photograph people, places and food for lifestyle, heritage and hospitality brands.  Storytelling is at the heart of my work and I love bringing a documentary approach and eye for detail to create very natural images.  My blog shares shoot stories giving a behind the scenes insight into each commission.
