Oly Barnsley started his career spending 2 years working for a design agency in Central London, before deciding to move to Paris and follow his passion for fashion photography. 

There he spent 5 years learning the business from the ground up, before striking out on his own as a professional photographer, working for a range of clients, including Madame Figaro, Instyle, Grazia and W magazine.

Having successfully established himself, Oly moved his base back to London, from where he travels all over the world, to work on a wide portfolio of assignments. 

His eye for the telling detail, and ability to tell a story with his pictures, have led to his talents increasingly being in demand for a diversifing variety of projects, including celebrity portraits, in addition to the fashion editorials which remain at the core of his work.
