Greg Williams‘ name and candid portraiture are synonymous with authentic glamour. He established his reportage style as a photojournalist in the ‘90s – covering war zones in Burma, Chechnya and Sierra Leone. An assignment for the Sunday Times Magazine gave Greg his first access to the film industry and he has now shot ‘specials’ on over 200 movies, including four poster campaigns for the Bond franchise. Greg has also enjoyed exclusive access to BAFTA, the Golden Globes and the Oscars and is a regular contributor to Vanity Fair and British Vogue.
In addition to his prodigious photographic output, Greg is also a filmmaker, principally with his first person, ‘moving reportage’ documentaries, and a product designer – Greg’s limited edition Leica Q2, in partnership with Daniel Craig, is Leica’s fastest selling large scale edition.
His education platform Skills Faster, is home to his highly successful Candid Photography Course, with the intention of ‘democratising good photography’.
Late last year Greg launched Skills Pro – an online photography programme for professional photographers. The twenty-part programme offers invaluable insight into professional photography shoots and the business of photography.
After 30 years in the business Greg’s talent and brand relationships are second to none. He publishes exclusives to over 900,000 followers on Instagram and on gregwilliams.com where he also sells his products and prints.
Greg Williams Photography operates from Greg’s studio/gallery space in Mayfair, London.
