About me

Following college in The North and a few years as a bass player, Dylan Collard moved to London 1998 and started assisting. Since becoming a commercial photographer, Dylan has shot work for the likes of Pfizer, Adidas, O2, Santander, and The Discovery Channel. Much of his work involves shooting real people on location using lighting and details to convey a sense of narrative about his subject. It has a sense of space and composition that encourages the audience to explore the image to uncover hidden detail and meaning. Dylan has recently been exploring a more studio based aesthetic looking particularly at studio portraiture. He works from his studio in South London and is a much better photographer than he was a bass player.
