KARL Mugshot

Karl Williams


Karl is a multi-award-winning photographer, currently based near Glasgow, with 50+ years of photographic experience in a variety of genres including fashion, portrait, wildlife and press photography. For the last 15 years or so, he has restricted his work to the less hectic genre of landscape photography – which not only provides a handy way of exploring Scotland but, more importantly, a means of getting out from under the feet of the long suffering Mrs W. His landscape images have been displayed world-wide in private collections and editorial publications, and have been used by a number of commercial organisations for a variety of uses.

His photographic philosophy is quite simple, and is based upon a quotation from Ansel Adams: “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs”. Unlike a number of other photographers, he admits to having no particular reverence for the photographic process in that he considers it simply as a means to an end: “My camera is a tool to give me the result I want and I’ll use any and every post-processing technique necessary to achieve that result.”
