Michael Wharley

Photographer Overview

I specialise in advertising, portrait & editorial photography for clients across the entertainment industries and beyond.

Based out my busy studio in Waterloo, I create bold, atmospheric pictures that balance narrative with visual impact, whether for film and theatre posters, editorial portraits, TV shows, magazines, book covers or advertising campaigns.

Recent highlights include shooting Alice Lowe for acclaimed horror-comedy ‘Prevenge’, an award-winning series for Connor McPherson's 'The Weir’, atmospheric portraits of ‘King of Clowns’ Chris Lynam, and the young cast of a major revival of modern rock musical ‘Spring Awakening’. I have also shot a series of environmental working portraits on commission in India, and a personal project on 'Cold Water Swimmers' in South London.

As comfortable shooting frosty pensioners as celebrities like Gemma Arterton or Gugu Mbatha Raw, I bring precision, technical skill and creativity to each new brief, with an easy-going manner that makes the process simplicity itself.

A long time AOP member and Fellow of the BIPP, I was recently awarded the 2018 BIPP 'Photographer of the Year' award at the National Awards.
