Una Williams Bio
When Una Williams took up photography as a hobby back in the 1980’s, little did she know that within four short months she would have her first photograph published in Ireland’s most popular music publication, Hot Press. Indulging in her passion working with the camera, Una embraced her new found career and soon became a regular contributor to many Irish publications, such as; In Dublin Magazine, U Magazine and numerous newspaper publications including The Star.
Working with many well known rock bands, the talented and well liked photographer became a regular on the Dublin social scene. In the mid 80’s Una toured with popular Irish rock band, Les Enfants, and covered all other major concerts in the Point Depot, as it was known at the time.
Gaining the respect she deserved from the music business, Una secured backstage passes to various gigs at the RDS, where she photographed the likes of Elton John, BB King and Emmylou Harris.
Being the only female photographer focusing on the music industry at the time, Una paved the way and proved to be an inspiration for future female photographers.
When she was asked along to a high profile fashion show in aid of a Chernobyl Charity in the 90’s, Una found herself photographing the ultimate supermodels Naomi Campbell and Jasmin Le Bon as well as up and coming boy band at the time, Boyzone.
In early 2000, Una took time out to rear a family and put her blossoming career on hold as she put all her time and effort into her four beautiful children.
Three years ago, in 2008, Una made the great decision to revive her career and once again picked up the camera she is so natural around and eagerly continued from where she left off.
Delighted with the return of this talented woman, Una found herself in constant demand covering social events and high profile fashion shows. Her photographs are regularly published in R.S.V.P., Social and Personal, Irish Tatler, The Irish Independent, The Sunday Independent, The Daily Mail, The Star, The Irish Sun, and The Gazette, to name a few.
In June 2011, Una secured backstage passes and expertly photographed the Def Leppard concert, featuring Alice Cooper.
Also that month, Una was hired by the PR team of popular American singer-songwriter, Kesha, when she performed to a sell out crowd in the O2.
Una is currently in demand and willingly covers celebrity weddings, high profile fashion shows, charity events, local events, model portfolios, family shoots and various other projects.
