David Williams-Ellis Portraits

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to shoot some portraits of celebrated figurative sculptor David Williams-Ellis. I jumped at the chance to visit his studio while he was working on pieces for his upcoming Elemental show. As well being an incredible sculptor, and all-round nice guy, David at work made a fascinating subject to photograph. His attention to detail is relentless.

The shots are here are my personal selection from a couple of sessions at his studio, hopefully they give some insight into the artist and how he works. They also happen to include the image that was chosen for David’s official portrait.

David Williams-Ellis’ Elemental exhibition opens at The Portland Gallery in London, December 3rd – 23rd 2014.
