Born and raised in the flat farmland of California’s Central Valley, which has a clear influence on her work, Gillian went on to study photography at New York University and then moved to Paris where she worked in fashion photography. After moving to London, Gillian completed a postgraduate degree (PG CERT) in photography from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, and both a Master of Arts (MA) and a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Documentary Photography from the University of Wales, Newport. Gillian continues to work as a freelance photographer and artist in California, the UK and abroad.

Gillian’s work is held in several private collections, as well as the collection of the University of the Arts London. She has worked on commissions for clients such as Vogue Italia, Central Saint Martins, Ugg Australia and Sub Pop Records, and has exhibited in the Brighton Biennial Fringe Festival, Ffotogallery in Cardiff and the Daegu Bienalle in South Korea as well as in other venues. 

Gillian is based in Los Angeles and can be hired for work throughout North America and Europe. Please email for further information, rates and schedule.
