The harmonious synthesis of color, form and exposure. The pursuit and presentation of the natural wonder of our planet. The promotion, continued stewardship and conservation of the natural world.
Since being given his first camera by his grandfather at an early age Bill has held a strong fascination in capturing the beauty of our natural world. In his travels across the American west he strives to find the rawest beauty in our panoramas and wildlife and reproduce this beauty so the viewer may know what he experienced on location.
Influenced by photographers Tom Mangelsen and Tony sweet, Bill's work remains heavily nature and wildlife but he may include a variety of subjects if the light is right.
Chasing light and landscapes has taken Bill around the world yet his favorite subject remains the american west.
Bill resides in the american southwest.
