About Colin Williams
Commercial Advertising Photographer based in New York
Originally from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago( the home of the steel band, calypso and the World’s best tangible carnival), my passion for Caribbean history and culture, and overall desire to aid in the development of the region of my birth plays an integral role in my creative work and direction. It is this passion that has been the impetus for my branching out into the event production arena so that I can showcase and allow people of diverse backgrounds to experience my Caribbean culture.
Welcome to Colin Williams Photography (CWP).
CWP is two-fold photography and events production entity. The photography division specializes in capturing the essence of life through the lens of the camera. Whether in film or still photographs, clients have had their goals met through LifeStyle, Travel, Advertising and documentaries. CWP’s event production arm which operates under the moniker "SoulBoys" engages attendees with a medley of Caribbean culture within an electric boutique-style atmosphere. Each event is conceived with a quest to create a camaraderie among individuals of diverse backgrounds and "trigger" thought and discussion about history and culture among a multi-generational audience.
I was in my twenty when assisting some of the world’s most renowned photographers and directors from New York City to Tokyo. Determined to perfect my craft, I pursued and took advantage of every opportunity that came my way - it didn’t matter what kind of shoot it was or how big or small, as long as it had the potential to help me learn about lighting and directing, and help me develop my talent as a versatile photographer. I started off doing architecture, food, events, portraiture, and sports shoots. Today, I am an award- winning photographer and creative director with a unique set of cross-functional skills who is highly sought after by major advertising agencies and leading global corporations. My client roster includes American Express, Forbes Magazine, The City of New York, Bloomberg Communication, Bloomingdale’s, Lancome, Macy’s, Sony Music, The Source Magazine, Vibe Magazine, Time Inc., Adidas, Nike, The Breast Cancer Society, The New York Times, Uptown Magazine, InStyle and About.Com. I have also had the privilege of working with celebrities like Tyra Banks, Grace Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, Jesse Jackson, Harry Belafonte and Lil Kim ,to name a few. Whether I’m shooting a pop artist, politician, supermodel, Caribbean Island or collaborating with an agency, my creative talent and expertise allow me to adapt to any situation.
