Joseph Ford

I began my adult life sensibly enough by studying French and Italian at the University of Cambridge and the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, then horrified my parents by deciding to be a photographer. The best summary of what I do is 'storytelling with a side order of off-beat creativity'. Dynamite fishing? Check. Live butterflies flying out of people's mouths? Check. A railway line merging into a zipper? Check. A crocodile attacking Lacoste sneakers? Yup, that too

Clients around the world choose me to create advertising and editorial images and films of people on location or in studio. Over the last few years I've also shot diptychs for numerous brands including Pepe Jeans, Hennessy, Lacoste and Missoni. So far I've produced still and moving images on location, in studio, from helicopters, boats and cranes, underwater and up mountains. If you have a challenge, I'd love to offer a creative solution
