FERGUS STOTHART

Director

Fergus Stothart is Director/DP whose distinctive style is highly aesthetic, with emphasis on spectacular photography and believable filmmaking. He builds passionate and emotional stories that evoke a powerful response from viewers.  Fergus loves the short formats of advertising spots and is a strong believer in the power of brand loyalty and identification. Above all, he is a perfectionist, tireless in ensuring the original ideas at the heart of every great treatment reach their full creative potential.

Fergus was born in Sydney, Australia, where his father is a painter and his mother interior designer. He grew up on a small farm north of Sydney and spent much of his later childhood living in Europe, attending school in France and Greece before returning to Melbourne, Australia. When his family moved to Spain in late 1980s, Fergus attended  photography course at Catalan Institute for Photography.

In 1991 he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark and worked as an assistant photographer for various photographers.  He started shooting himself in Scandinavia before moving back to Barcelona where he quickly became one of Spain’s leading photographers – shooting for Volkswagen, Audi, Sheat, Renault.  He specialized in shooting cars, winning awards at Cannes, Sol, FIAP, and CLEO among others.  His most treasured award is Audi International’s  “Best Print Ad of the Year”.

Audi commissioned Fergus to direct his first television commercial in 2005 and he has never looked back at what he saw as a natural progression for a dedicated photographer. He has since directed spots for clients including Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Chrysler, Puig, Alpura and The Canary Islands.
