Holly has always felt at ease behind a lens. Finding the right combination of composition, lighting and intrigue is a math equation she never tires of trying to solve. She passionately believes everyone should have a great portrait they can hold onto for a lifetime (and takes great joy in making that happen). To capture a little slice of time, she loves to have a conversation with her photography subjects and catch them exactly when they reveal that precise thing it is that makes them who they are.
Holly grew up in Delaware and has lived in New York, Spain, Poland and Finland. For the last ten years, Vancouver has been home. She has always been inspired by Silvia Plath’s quote: “Why can’t I try on different lives, like dresses, to see which fits best and is more becoming?” That drive has led to a diverse career in film production, teaching, journalism, documentary filmmaking and photography.
Her chihuahua-mix rescue pup (and best friend), Otis, is named after her favourite performer of all time, Otis Redding.
As an introverted kid, she found solace in cooking shows and would love to have her own cooking show one day.
She upholds that Conan the Barbarian (1982) is not only a phenomenal epic film, but also the most unrivalled romance story ever to unfold on screen — and she’s happy to dispute it.
