(Greater Palm Springs, CA) -  Iconic images of Greater Palm Springs captured by renowned photographer Greg Williams will be showcased tonight at a private event at the Parker Palm Springs. A behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot will also be presented.

Over the past 15 years, Greg Williams has photographed some of the world’s most recognizable faces—from Keira Knightley to Tom Hardy and most notably with Daniel Craig in his tenure as 007. Until recently, his work in films and photography had never brought him to Palm Springs. That changed in 2014 when the Greater Palm Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) invited Williams and his muse— model and designer Daisy Lowe—to experience this Southern California Desert Oasis. 

For his first venture to Greater Palm Springs, the CVB gave Williams complete creative freedom to produce this photo shoot, resulting in the photographer’s own artistic interpretation of the beauty that exists in this iconic destination. As Williams and his crew traveled throughout the destination over a three-day period, many shoot locations were chosen on an artistic whim—as inspiration dictated. 

In addition to creating Williams’ photographic vision, the team enlisted videographer Sean Hill to film behind the scenes of the photo shoot with Williams and Lowe. The footage has been transformed into a 12-minute video that captures the iconic photo shoot locations in the Coachella Valley and the making of the ten cinematic images set in Hollywood’s “playground of the stars.”
