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 couple of months, and whatever would fit in the back of the car.
Still based in London, today Michael is well known for his portraits of musicians, including Kasabian, La Roux, The Killers, Oasis, Ian Brown, Ellie Goulding, Pixie Lott, The Maccabees, and Portishead to name just a few, and other celebrities from the worlds of sport, film, and music.
His portraits have featured in many publications around the world, including Filter, Clash, Uncut, Time, Die Zeit, 944, 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.
