Harley Weir’s photography career started at an early age, thanks to the internet. “The internet was completely my portal into photography,” she told Bullett Magazine. “I think that is the case with pretty much everyone these days. I started off posting my pictures on the internet. Someone liked them, some other people started liking them, and it sort of bubbled away like that. The internet has been very good for me.”
Known for her youthful approach to fashion photography, she likes to challenge the norms when it comes to women photography, with her primary goal being: moving people. “It doesn’t really matter what emotion it is really… It’s so difficult to move people,” she admitted.
Weir graduated from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design with a BA in Fine Art in 2010. It was there that she taught herself photography, experimenting with film and collage. She soon began shooting advertising campaigns and lookbooks for major labels including Balenciaga, Céline, Stella McCartney, and Jacquemus.
