A VISUAL STORYTELLER
Mike Will has dabbled in creativity his whole life, first picking up his passion for photography in 2005 whilst studying at Lewes College, UK.
Being a talented creative on one hand, Mike was also a budding athlete wanting to pursue a career as a professional athlete. This saw him move to Canada in 2006 as well as America, Scotland, Australia, Wales, and finally back to England to play at the highest levels representing Team GB in ice hockey at the world championships.
In early 2016 Mike picked up his camera once again and, similar to his fast progression in sport, has quickly become known as one of the most talented up and coming shooters on the social media scene. He has a huge passion for travel photography and enjoys showing the world through his eyes.
Across Mike's accounts you'll find striking landscapes, a fascination with night shooting and wow-worthy portraits. Mike challenges himself daily to improve his skill set, master his talent and continue to enjoy the beautiful craft of photography.
@uk.shooters is a passionate community that hosts photography and creative meets around the UK showcasing the country’s most talented and up and-coming shooters and creative individuals.
The page launched in late 2016 after the founder, @m.visuals, was introduced to the street art scene in LA . Being drawn to its unique energy and impressed by the level of talent the photographers and creatives possessed he wanted to take this to another level in the UK, not only as a community but a brand and recognisable social platform. The brand has quickly amassed a highly engaged following and an impressive 185k photos under the hashtag #uk_shooters.
Alongside @uk.shooters are two other creative accounts; @uk.portraits and @uk.spinners. Both of these are complementary to the primary @uk.shooters account and allow for further reach in niche photography styles.
Our meets are highly anticipated and have been hugely successful. Our events aren’t just about the photography, it’s for people to vibe and network with likeminded creatives; we are photographers, videographers and graphic designers - and regular folk who simply appreciate visually aesthetic content
Mike has a huge passion for live music and has shot for some of the best DJs in the country including DJ Friction, Dimension, Pendulum, Marshmello, Benny Benassi, Jamie Jones, Sub Focus and Fine Art at Festivals such as Creamfields, Let It Roll, Untold and Tomorrowland!
