Barry Willis London

Barry Willis has been producing engaging images for lifestyle, corporate and advertising clients for more than 25 years. The stripped-back, storytelling aspect of his personal reportage work informs much of Barry’s commercial photography.

“I strive to produce images that express emotions through the informality of the caught moment, but delivered with the polish of high-end production values,” he says. “I love the collaboration of working with a creative team on large productions but equally, when the subject requires, I relish shooting with a more intimate approach."

It’s Barry’s creativity, attention to detail and experience that will ensure that a project is a success; his personality means clients will definitely enjoy the process!

Recent clients include Abbeyfield, British Land, COTY, CLIC Sargent, National Bingo, Nuffield Health, Reckitt Benckiser, Stallergenes Greer and the Wellcome Trust.

Kate Abbey Photography London

"I once met a Dad who watched his young daughter play football every Saturday come rain or shine. He was a busy man who had a million and one more things to do, but loyally he stood and watched his daughter dashing around after the ball. As the weekends went by, she eventually scored a goal and as she spun round searching for her Dad, their eyes met, and that split second of pure and utter joy sparked between them.

On a shoot, unfortunately I don’t have the privilege of waiting for ‘life' to happen - I have to create it. I have to capture those fleeting moments on demand - every single time - with compassion, zest and warmth, all aided by my incredibly talented crew, who make me laugh.

I’m London-based, with 20 years' experience, represented by Morgan Lockyer and work with the likes of Google, Nokia, Puma and Skype."
