I love the way Bill plays with different moods. He captures movement well – his model photos are often quite dynamic, though he is still able to get a beautiful amount of depth and interest from a static shot.


I also like browsing the artist’s Portraits gallery. The photos are often accompanied by the name and occupation of the model, and it’s interesting to see Bill incorporate individual personalities into the photos. Artists are shot next to their work, musicians according to the tone of their songs, there are even a few fitness trainers in dark, serious lighting. In his personal practice, Bill is currently working on a series of abstract landscape photographs, which can be viewed in the Personal gallery on his portfolio.
