VICTORIA WILL

Victoria began her career at the New York Post where she was a staff photographer. In a news environment responsible for headlines like "Headless Body in Topless Bar," Victoria honed her skills and her sense of humor. She has the ability to put the ordinary in an extraordinary light while seamlessly balancing heroic yet natural compositions. No matter what the circumstance she manages to find those honest, real moments. With a focus on portraiture and lifestyle imagery, her photographs appear in newspapers and magazines worldwide, from W Magazine to the Associated Press, The New York Times to Vogue. A graduate from Princeton University, she hails from Washington, D.C., but now resides in New York with her photojournalist husband, their son, and two French Bulldogs.
