Raised in a small mining village in the industrial North of England, Simon Procter studied Fine Art for many years and until recently was a sculptor and painter.
It was whilst doing a variety of odd jobs in Paris that he met by accident a member of the celebrated New York Visionaire team. He was asked to do the somewhat dangerous task of shooting a Dior show from 100 feet up in the roof. From this show he produced his first fashion image. This evolved rapidly to become two major stories in V Magazine, an exhibition at Colette (sponsored by both Armani and Prada) and finally to be picked up by Karl Lagerfeld for his publishing company 7L.
Simon continues to apply his unique painters aesthetic to the numerous features he has produced for V Magazine, Vogue Nippon, Harpers Bazaar and The New York Times.
Clients include The Boston Musueum of Fine Art , Nokia, Marriot Hotels, Adidas Y-3, L'Oréal Paris and Nike.
