Michael Robert Williams Profile

Photographer Michael Robert Williams grew up in the small town of Congleton, just south of Manchester in North West England. Some time later he moved to London armed with a camera, a photography degree, enough money to live on for a few months, and whatever would fit in the back of the car.

Still based in London, today Michael is known for his portraits of the famous and celebrated, including The Killers, Nicholas Hoult, Ellie Goulding, Oasis, Bernardo Bertolucci, Ian Brown, and Pixie Lott to name just a few, as well as other celebrities and figures from the worlds of music, film, sport, and politics.

His portraits have featured in many publications around the world, including Clash, Filter, Time, Die Zeit, 944, In The Black, FMS, and NME. In addition to portraits for magazines Michael has produced artwork and promotional images for record labels and artist management, and commercial clients including Adidas, Microsoft, Philips, JCPR, and American Rag Clothing. Although always shooting, when not on assignment Michael enjoys travel, music, and films.
