Biography

London based photographer Josh Olins quickly established himself as one of fashion’s most prolific and talented ‘new-gen’ photographers. The photographer’s editorial portfolio is world class. Olins has shot for US, French, British, Chinese and Japanese Vogue, Vanity Fair, V, V Man and i-D, and a cover story for WSJ.

Olins is equally as successful commercially and has lensed campaigns for Balenciaga, Prada , Giorgio Armani , Louis Vuitton , Jil Sander , Aquascutum, Tommy Hilfiger , Adidas, H&M, Levis, Benetton, Gap, L’Oreal, Lancome and Topshop.

Renowned for the precise composition of his group shots, Olins says “A lot of what I love in photography is composition and what better way to do that than fill your frame with multiple characters.” In addition to the strength of his composition, Olins’ photography is possessed of a naturalness that transcends setting and props, and consistently imbues his work with unaffected elegance.

Whilst completing an art foundation course at Middlesex University, in which he specialized in photography, Olins began freelancing as an assistant in London. Entering his craft the old fashioned way, Olins “ did then get accepted onto a further degree course but after showing a few people my work, but I decided to take the assistant route. It seemed more suited to me.”
