I am an American photographer who has been been lucky enough to have practiced my art in more than 33 countries around the world.
I really found my love of photography when I moved to Miami, Florida as a young adult. After growing up in and living so many years in New Jersey, which I consider gray and dull, I wasn't really aware of my surroundings anymore. In Miami, everything was so different, and it really opened my eyes to the world around me, and I was particularly intrigued by what it looked like through a lens. I was amazed by the contrast in ordinary life, and the juxtaposition of subjects and context. It was then I decided to study both photography and film/video/tv production, working in the field while studying. My first ever published photograph was for a furniture reseller in a Miami Herald ad.
In 2004, on a visit, I fell in love with Nicaragua, its vibrant culture and wonderful people, and stayed for a while. After spending several more years in Central America, my photography went from strength to strength as I continued to photograph people and things throughout the world, never saying no to an opportunity of what I like to call 'Artography'. I have been involved in runway shoots, product photography, weddings and special events, modeling sessions and I work regularly for magazines and newspapers. I have been invited as guest judge and speaker at workshops and contests and my work has been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally.
I am free to travel worldwide and have offices in Las Vegas, Miami, Tucson and Managua, Nicaragua. Please contact me for weddings, special events, product campaigns or for commisioned work. Please visit my portfolio www.imagesbywilliam.net.
