Christopher Willan Barcelona travel photographers

Chris Willan tells the stories of places and people through crisp and authentic images that hum with warmth, humanity and humour. His 20 years of experience have seen him work across advertising, TV, film, NGO, editorial and corporate assignments, both alone and as part of creative teams, with some of the best-known photographers and agencies in the world, including Magnum.

Born in Uganda, raised in Liverpool and based in Spain for the last 17 years, his natural affinity with all people - from Rastas to Royalty, burger flippers to billionaires - means he creates images of rare sympathy wherever he goes. In recent years, that eye for the narrative within has seen him solo exhibit at Tate Modern, Museu d'Història de la Immigració de Catalunya, The Gallery Oldham and The National Theatre, and win the World Responsible Travel Award for photography in 2013.

2014 saw him move into moving image and he is currently completing a worldwide shoot for a major travel company.

He lives in the heart of Barcelona with his wife Belen and teenage sons Luis and Pablo.

Joan Gonzalez Barcelona DOPs/ advertising & commercials

"I love my job, and I consider myself a lucky person. It was not easy getting here but the effort was definitely worth it! My professional career began in Mallorca working at various international production companies. Some years later, I moved to Barcelona where I studied  Direction of Photography while working as a gaffer. Passing through the lighting department to become D.o.P. is hard but light is what builds a good photograph. It also gave me the opportunity to work with some true masters of cinema.

This experience ended in 2010 with 20 films and dozens of commercials and music videos to my name. My work as a cinematographer included genres as diverse as advertising, documentary, short films and feature films - and in all formats (35mm, Super 16mm, HD, Epic, etc.). Some of these subsequently received various awards.

I love facing challenges with a positive attitude, looking for creative solutions to facilitate the work of everyone."
