Shelley Horan is an Australian photographer making vibrant and surprising pictures of people and objects. Based in Melbourne and travelling nationally to shoot with clients in design, hospitality and editorial spaces, Shelley is known for her effervescent presence and boundless energy on set.

With ten years' experience in fine art and commercial photography, Shelley brings a pure sense of vitality to her work, from project inception to completion. An enthusiastic artist with the ability to manage full shoot productions, a black book of collaborators and a swathe of technical know-how, Shelley can scale her offering to suit your project.

Shelley was recently interviewed by The Design Files about her still life exhibition 'Compositions'. This body of work focuses on found-object arrangements, resembling something between a messy office drawer and a kaleidoscopic supermarket shelf. The large saturated prints woo art folk and small children alike. Prints from this series are available to purchase ︎︎︎
