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 and in over 90 countries worldwide.
Born in Uganda, raised in Liverpool and based in Spain for the last 20 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.
2014 saw him move into moving image and he is currently completing a worldwide shoot for a major travel company. Chris is the Creative Director of Photography at Greentraveller Productions. He works from a large studio in the heart of Barcelona.
Clients include BBC Worldwide, Channel 4, The Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship, The Travel Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, The Arts Council UK, Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona, Condé Nast, The Times, The Guardian, Barclays, Pictet & CIE, Virgin, British Airways, ThomasCook, Tui and First Choice.
