Graham Atkins-Hughes started his career in photography over twenty years ago. Having studied in his home town of Dublin, he cut his teeth professionally as an assistant/studio manager in a commercial studio in the city.
Having worked with visiting photographers on the studios behalf, he knew he would quickly out-grow the local market and it wasn’t long before Graham decided to move to London. During his time in London he assisted such luminaries, as Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber & London based photographers Corrine Day, Reagan Cameron & Perry Ogden.
When Graham stopped assisting, commissions came quite quickly, in the first month he shot for Wallpaper Magazine’s launch issue, the Financial Times lifestyle magazine ‘How to Spend it’ & Marie Claire UK, the rest is history as they say. To date Graham has been lucky enough to work for some of London's top publications and clients. He operates from his UK base in Dalston, London servicing both large and small clients needs.
“ I absolutely love being a photographer, it’s the best job ever, I couldn’t do anything else”
This year ( 2013 ) will see Graham expand his imaging skills into film and moving image, he is currently embarking on some training and personal projects, building up contacts to work with on film scripts. More on that later, in the meantime he is busy shooting stills both in the UK and internationally for his ever growing client list.
