Today we’d like to introduce you to the work of our client, Peter Williams, and share with you some of his images and the motivation behind his photography.
“I’m a commercial photographer based in London and Brighton, who is currently heading towards the advertising sector of photography. Regarding my photographic development, I’ve found the last four years fun, interesting and eye-opening. I even had my picture taken by Rankin for Rankin Live what has put a huge smile on my face.
“I am a type of person who gets a buzz out of helping people, it makes me not only happy, but also motivates me to create things. I try to integrate my personal projects together with my portfolio in order to grab the attention of everyone who sees my work.
“There are many things that inspire and motivate me to take photos. Usually, it’s down to the smallest things and details, such as the way a beautiful woman walks, the attitude of photographers during 50s and 60s, or simply the way people lived and dressed during that time.
“I get inspired when I see something interesting on TV, or while listening to certain kinds of music. Sometimes it is a beautiful landscape that helps me find inspiration. However, what I consider to be the most influential for my work, are probably beautiful women. My current project, the ‘Beauti’, perfectly illustrates that.
“I don’t think I would be where I am right now if I never come across David Bailey, Brian Duffy, Stephen Shore and, most importantly, Chase Jarvis. These great photographers have had a huge impact on my life and the way I perceive art. I have learned from their approach to photography and their attitudes towards life.
“The range of images I have selected includes commissioned work as well as personal shots for my printed portfolio.
“The picture of a runner was shot for a running-orientated company in Brighton and used to improve the look of their website. That was probably one of my most favourite clients this year and I think they were very happy for what I did for them.
“The two portraits are part of a personal project called Accepted. This project involves taking photos of people, not just anyone I meet, but people who understand me as a person or have similar views on things as me.
“This project can be seen at behance.net during the upcoming week, and I will also be doing a small gallery show in London and Brighton to showcase these wonderful people to the public.
“The urban landscape shot of London is a part of my personal, ongoing project, where I photograph one of my most favourite cities in the world, London.
