We all know Annabel Williams without a doubt. She is one of the most highly respected portrait photographers in the UK. She is a multiple award winning photographer and her reputation as both a world class photographer and an outstanding teacher is recognised across the globe. Her warm enthusiasm coupled with an incredibly intuitive approach is and always has been the driving force behind her very personal and unique style of innovative yet contemporary award winning portraiture.

She has constantly reinvented herself throughout her 25 year career to remain at the top of her profession, and has a unique ability to predict what is going to happen next, deal with it and create new products for the latest generation.

She brings to her work an imagination and insight which is rare even amongst the finest professionals, all of which has contributed to her outstanding performance in her genre and it is these qualities which command Annabel so much respect from her peers.

No stranger to both TV and the press (endlessly talked about and written about in the magazines), Annabel is also the author of several portrait photography books, all written particularly for people who want to learn how to shoot portraits in a natural and simple way.

You will of course, be able to use all the photographs you have taken for your own portfolio.

We expect very high demand for the evening seminars and the 2-day Workshops so we recommend that you book early!
