Contemporary Portrait Photographer Dublin

I have been photographing portraits of people of all ages since 2005 for Ireland’s largest Portraiture companies. After leaving in 2010, I set up Holst Photography as a means to broaden my photography skills. These days I move between the studio environment and location-based portraiture for Weddings and also commercial clientele.

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

“Consummate professional; punctual, friendly, flexible, and super open to any ideas”

Studio Portraits

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

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

Special events like graduation or communions can also be booked for call-out 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 have them turn out great. Using a portable lighting setup, great portraits can be captured anywhere. Over the 15+ years, I have experienced photographing 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 blend in with the environment.

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