Every photo should evoke an emotion that your audience loves

Hi, I'm William

I'm a photographer, just like you. I teach Visual Storytelling. So what does that mean?

It’s a method of approaching your photography with the knowledge of who you’re trying to serve with your photos, and what emotion you want to make them feel. We encourage you to concentrate on your subject, light and background to create a photo your audience loves.

My Story

The first thing you need to know is that I'm a Florida native. I grew up in Orange County and we couldn't toss a squirrel without it hitting an orange tree.

Those days are gone. I don't think there are any orange groves left in Orange County now. The squirrels are still here and they bear a grudge.

I live with my wife & daughter. Like Al Bundy, I drive a Dodge. We have two retrievers who live with us in the Central Florida ‘burbs.

I'm a photographer, just like you. Not that I try to be a professional photographer who takes on clients. That's not what I enjoy.

However, I'm fortunate enough to occasionally sell some photos for stock, corporate art and some commercial work. I even have one of my photos hanging in the Congress.

One thing that's important to me is to share and pass on what I've learned. That's what this site is all about.
