CHLOE POLLARD CREATIVE MEDIA: MUSIC, EVENT, FASHION AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER AND GRAPHIC DESIGNER.
FOUNDER AND EDITOR OF FLARE MAGAZINE
UK based music, event, fashion and portrait photographer.
I am a UK-based music, event and portrait photographer currently based in the Cardiff area. I studied BA (Hons) Press and Editorial Photography at Falmouth University.
I found my love of music photography in 2017 when I photographed a series of festivals across the South West. Since then I’ve continued to work with festivals and have worked with numerous bands such as Circa Waves, The Kaizens, Quorum and most recently Parlour Suns, producing live images, music videos and PR images.
My personal projects include photo series’ such as a fashion series, which combines my love of music, photography and fashion in one series, as well as short multimedia pieces focussing on both individuals and companies.
As a huge music, film and TV lover, I am also the founder and editor of Flare Magazine. Flare is an entertainment magazine originally created to support the up-and-coming entertainment industry during the pandemic but has become far bigger than what it was originally intended for. We feature reviews, interviews and behind the scenes exclusives as well as Q&As and new announcements.
I have experience writing reviews and conducting then writing up interviews, corresponding with bands, PR agencies and photographers as well as promoting material on social media and building websites. I also have experience making both music videos and promotional trailers for upcoming shows as well as video bios for companies.
