Scotland-born Gillean Proctor established himself as a successful photographer in London early in his career, after studying photography at art school and apprenticing with the professor of photography at the prestigious Royal College of Art in London.
He moved to Canada in 1976 and established Oasis, an internationally recognized art, design and photography partnership which quickly became one of the leading visual design studios in North America. Gillean went on to win multiple awards throughout Canada and the US, most recently the International Photography Awards.
He is best known for his conceptual work and bold stylish images. His sensitive and intuitive lighting, composition and balance carry through all his work, be it his arresting still life or striking portraits.
He has also won several Lions at the Cannes International Film Festival for his equally impressive film work.
