William David began as a limited photographic project series – but since expanded.
As a solo photographer using tried and tested techniques Wil.D has become known with working with actors and performers new to the industry or starting out – building up range and self confidence, and often preparing them for their first agent.
Photoshoots range from classic headshots to charactor work in addition to the confidence and range building work.
Most shoots are quite informal and flexable agenda for those starting out.
Wil.D has become known for specialist work with males, an area less covered than that with females by many photographers.
The Wil.D work reconises that many performers now begin with extra work in television or film – or by initial work within modelling. It is not always the case that an actor has undertaken traditional dramatic training to begin a career within the industry.
The William David Shoots reflect this new wave of performers and their need to self promote and build up confidence with limited support or training.
Image Matters – the current main work strives to build up a confident performer infront of the camera through which the experience extends into their performance work. It deals with potential pitfalls of being seen online and difficult areas such as “nude in performance” can be covered without fuss.
All shoots are confidential and images are only released by mutual consent – or dependant on the shoot terms.
The key aspect from feedback however is how different the shoot approach is, and how it actually tends to be “fun” even when pushing self confidence to the personal limits.
Simple Fact:- A lot of those new to performers fail to advance due to being afraid of what may be required of them if they actually say yes to a role!!
