Olivia Beasley is a London-based photographer. She originally studied using drawing and painting techniques which were applied to packaging, editorial and advertising campaigns.
She moved towards personal projects with a more conceptual base considering British identity and secrecy, which included writing and documentary photography. Olivia transferred her work practice to photography in the mid 90’s and is now working on editorial, advertising and personal projects. Projects and commercial practice often have overlapping, intertwining themes and one inspires the other.
On going projects include sourcing and photographing new British creative talent for US magazine, Soma.
Olivia was selected to show at the 20th International Hyeres Festival of Fashion & Photography, France and Fotoseptiembre Festival in Mexico City. She was also nominated for the Photofolio exhibition at Rencontres d’Arles, France.
Olivia manages to bring her sense of style and elegance to all subjects
