Graham Atkins-Hughes is renowned for his unparalleled passion for photographing space and atmosphere.
Self confessed film fanatic (and one time butcher) with three decades of media industry experience, he relishes the challenge of collaboratively translating a clients brief into a pictorial story, creating an invitation for the viewer to become a part of the lifestyle the Designer or Company is offering to them.
An illustrious career that began over 30 years ago in Dublin and has seen him working with Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, Gian Paolo Barbieri, Kim Knott and Perry Ogden and taken him around the globe, photographing everything from knickers to knickerbocker glories and everything in-between.
In his rare spare time he is an avid world traveller, Director/script writer of short films and serial renovator of location properties.
