Hannah, an accomplished York photographer based in Fishergate with over a decade of experience, aims to bring a unique perspective to the field of fashion and beauty photography.

With a fine art photography degree from the University of Wolverhampton and a vast portfolio of exhibitions and publications worldwide, Hannah Lunn has established a reputation for capturing editorial-style photographs with an edgy, fashionable twist.

Hannah said being crowned the Yorkshire Blogger Awards Photographer of the year 2023 would be a significant achievement for her. Not only would it validate her personal dedication and talent behind the lens, but it would also provide a platform to amplify her message of inclusivity and diversity, ensuring representation for those who have historically been underrepresented.

The York photographer said: "On a personal level, being shortlisted for such an incredible award is a fantastic achievement, it means a lot to me that people love my photographs that I put my heart and soul into.

"Winning the award however, will allow me to continue to spread my message of inclusivity and diversity for those who need representation to help shape the industry from the inside.”

Hannah is dedicated to promoting female empowerment and works extensively with women in the York area. By producing boudoir portraits, she aims to provide a transformative experience for women who may have little or no previous experience in front of the camera.

She advocates for representing diverse races, religions, sizes, body types, disabilities, tattoos, skin conditions and genders, challenging traditional beauty standards and promoting a more inclusive industry.

The Yorkshire Blogger Awards 2023 will culminate in an event to be held at The Queens Hotel in Leeds on Saturday, September 30. Tickets for this celebratory evening, honoring bloggers, influencers, and YouTubers, are available for purchase.
