Contemporary Portrait Photographer in Dublin

I have been photographing portraits of people of all ages since 2005 for Ireland’s largest portraiture company. After leaving in 2010, I set up Holst Photography to broaden my photography skills. These days I move between studio and location-based portraiture for weddings and commercial clients.

The studio is based in Citywest, Dublin, and caters to visitors from Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow, and Meath.

Studio Portraits

The studio is based in Citywest, Dublin. It can cater for a variety of portrait sessions ranging from maternity/newborn sessions and family portraits to modeling/headshots. Photo sessions are fun, relaxed, and professional.

Outside the studio, lifestyle photoshoots can be booked to create stylish, natural portraits in an indoor or outdoor setting of your choice.

Special events like graduations or communions can also be booked for call-outs in Dublin and neighboring counties.

“So professional throughout and nice so I felt very comfortable near the camera where I usually do not!”


Location & Lifestyle Portraits

Not all portraits need to be taken in a studio to turn out beautifully. Using a portable lighting setup, great portraits can be captured anywhere. Over 15+ years, I have photographed in various locations and calling out to clients across Co. Dublin and surrounding areas.

This setup is ideal for clients wanting to be photographed in their own setting, be it for comfort or to blend in with the environment.

“For our company Headshots. His work is excellent and very professional. Would recommend it highly”
