William Goodchild portrait session

This portrait session was a long time in the making. We first made contact a few months ago through our mutual friend David Minns (Brown in Town) and had been looking for a good venue to shoot in since. I mentioned I was looking to do a portrait session with him to St George’s in Bristol when I was there on business for Pixillion and they offered use of the beautiful venue as a location in exchange for a license to the images. William performs at St George’s regularly, so that was absolutely perfect.

William Goodchild is a composer, orchestrator and conductor who produces music for film, television and concert performance. He has worked for the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, PBS, National Geographic International and Animal Planet. William has collaborated on stage and in the recording studio with a wide variety of international soloists including John Williams, Andy Sheppard, Tom Jones and Roni Size + Reprazent. A number of William's recordings are available on Sony Classical, Universal Classical and Jazz, and CBS Records.


We got together on a sunny afternoon in July. It was a true pleasure to do this shoot. I love these opportunities to work with so many interesting and talented people.
