About

Clara Scullion is a professional fine art and commercial photographer from Co. Antrim, Ireland.

After working across Ireland, the UK and Sweden, Clara is now studying her MFA in Photography at Ulster University, Belfast.

After she graduated from NCAD, Dublin, Clara became a winner of the In Public, In Particular Graduate Award, 2017. In the same year, she was shortlisted by the Adobe Design Achievement Awards for videography.

Her exploration of colour and light through photography is often inspired by the paintings of American Realism and Art Nouveau.

While her fine art practice examines intricacies of post-conflict Northern Ireland, Clara's commercial work includes film stills photography, portraiture, and live event photography.

As a qualified and experienced art teacher, Clara also runs photography workshops as part of her socially engaged art practice.
