Olivia Rose

Olivia Rose is a multi-award-winning director and photographer based in London. Since beginning a career in portrait photography over a decade ago, Olivia’s work has been exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery and Somerset House and appeared on the pages of Vogue, i-D and Elle. As a director, she has worked with Spotify, Nike, Skepta and Jorja Smith.

After graduating from London College of Fashion with a First in Fashion Photography in 2007, Olivia’s portraits have appeared on the covers of the Guardian Guide [Skepta], Brick [Giggs] and King Kong Magazine [Slowthai] and in the pages of Elle and i-D magazine. She regularly shoots fashion editorial for i-D and British Vogue, preferring to street cast her subjects rather than using industry models in an attempt to broaden representation. In September 2016 Olivia published the
Penderyn nominated and Amazon best selling book 'This Is Grime’ to wide critical acclaim. She was one of only 100 photographers selected to show work across the country in the British Journal of Photography's 'Portrait of Britain’ 2018, and, in 2019, the National Portrait Gallery acquired six of Olivia’s portraits for their permanent collection, including those of Stormzy, Skepta and Jorja Smith. Her commercial clients include The Barbican, Napapijri, ASOS and Nike and she has taken press shots for everyone from Tom Grennan to Kano, Grace Carter and Ray
BLK. Olivia’s imagery has been featured on billboards and merchandise across the globe.
