BriAnne Wills is a talented 29-year-old American fashion and portrait photographer from Portland, Oregon who now lives abroad in Ukraine with her journalist husband (a former Peace Corps Volunteer). As you can imagine, she’s not afraid to travel and has found herself living in Prague and Shanghai as well. Her fashion work has been featured in several notable publications like Gia, Disfunkshion, Spin and NYLON.
While talking with Brianne about working abroad, she mentioned, “Sometimes it can be very difficult during the planning stages of a shoot trying to communicate my vision to someone who speaks very little English.” Even with her limited Russian/Ukrainian, her talent transcends the language barrier, because her images are consistantly colorful, lively and so dang good.
Here’s a sampling of some of our favorite images from Brianne’s lovely portfolio:
