A little bit

about me

Hello, thanks for checking out my site and welcome to the about page. My name is Johnathan Williams; I'm a twenty-year-old photographer, illustrator and journalist from Birmingham. I'm currently studying media and communications at Birmingham city university while freelancing as a photographer and aspiring videographer. I primarily specialise in music, events and portraiture photography. If you've already visited the photography section of my site, you would have seen examples of the work I've produced.

 

The field of photography I'm passionate about the most is music. After photographing my first live show in December 2016 at a small, music venue, I became fascinated with music photography. I gradually started to go to more shows capturing photos in the crowd before eventually freelancing for a small music publication. Since then I've been fortunate enough to photograph various music festivals across the UK including Wireless, Reading, Made and We Are Festival alongside meeting some amazing individuals who have provided me invaluable advice and guidance.
