It is best to

oops, sorry forgot to add my name and e:mail address. Remember I'm not the computer literate :); my sister is.
My name is Ling, part of the Yee family. We share the Sand Dunes with you and your students in the dead of the night at Death Valley.
This was unexpected, but it couldn’t have been a more perfect evening: good companies, clear, starry skies, shooting stars, howling coyotes and your magnificent photos. What more can one ask.
You had literally saved our evening; we wouldn’t have been able to take any of the Milky Way photos without your help. It was very thoughtful and kind of you to share your time and teaching with us. We learned so much.
We love to see the outcome of the 'red light' group pictures of the Milky Way.
Thank you for making the evening a fun and memorable one.
We met a few days ago at Golden Canyon in Death Valley, and you were kind enough to take some photos of my wife and me. She had the black and white striped hat, and you suggested she hold it in front of her. So we are probably someone distinctive on that front! Anyway, great to meet, and would love to get an e-copy of the photo if it turned out well.
Hi this is the Badwater jumping girls (lol) You took our photos at Death Valley. We had such a blast with your photography group. Would like to see if you can email them.
My friend and I met you and your photography group at the Sand Dunes in Death Valley last week. Can you please send me details for the photography group outing in Downtown, LA on January 30th. Briana and I would love to meetup with you guys. It was such a pleasure meeting you and your group. Thank you for the hospitality and making us feel welcome.
Sincerely, Annie Hsu

Hi William, Thank you for taking the lovely photo of the Hunter family in front of City Hall Friday night. Very kind of you to drop everything to come over and offer to take a family pic. Hope you are enjoying this holiday season. Warmly,
Hello William, it was a pleasure meeting you and listening to your tips while shooting the sunset over Manhattan Beach last night. Thanks for the tips and I look forward to joining you on that trip to shoot downtown. Rob Cochran
Have I ever told you how much I love your photography?! Always such a pleasure to find a new image here. You are not only an amazing photographer but also a great instructor; patient and so good interacting with people! Keep up the good work, William!
Hi Wm....please include me in a one day adventure down the coast near HB ....and south. Xx marion
Hola amigo, I was at the Dia de los Muertos festvities at the Placita Olvera on Nov.2. You took some pictures of me in my outfit, as a Guerrera,with my bullet vest and rifle by the fountain. After that the owner of the Myrosa shop talked to me and asked that I give permission to use my photos if you choose to do so. I hope so and also hope that you can sent some so that I can see them. Thank you so much, you made me feel that I well spent my time getting my costume ready. Muchas gracias! Evie.

Good Morning William
I was glad to meet you at the California Hotel in Las Vegas.
I hope you had a good time .
I would like you to keep in touch .
Your work is fascinating.
In early October, you were kind enough to take a picture of a group of six ladies in Vernazza, Cinque Terra. I was trying to climb up on the sea wall and I think you might have been fearful that I would fall; so you kindly offered to take the picture. One of the six had on a red/pink floral sweater and she has blond hair. We would like to be able to get that shot. My email is email@example.com Thank you
Hi William. You took pictures of Mr and my friend, Alison, on 11-2-14 at Dia de los Muertos on the balcony at Olveritas Village. She is a beautiful platinum blonde with a top hat, and I have raven black hair who is top heavy (lol). If you could send anything to me that would be fantastic. Love, love, love(!!!) your work! Thank you so much in advance and it was such a pleasure to meet you and fun, fun, fun(!!!) to take pictures with you! Thanks again, Lara 🌹💀🌹
Hi William! Last night you took our pictures for el Dia de Los Muertos at La Placita Olvera, you took pictures of my husband and I kissing right next to a window, we both had the skull faces I'm sure that helps lol I was wearing a black scarf over my head. We're excited to see how the pictures came out. Thank You!

We met you and your group at Yosemite Falls while you were talking about a rainbow that we didn't even see while walking through!!! You were really helpful with the tips
regarding the light of the Rainbow and a polarizer that I had never even heard of!
We checked out your Workshops and hope to attend one soon. Your images in the Galleries are truly special and unique as well!!
It is as though Zeus himself is speaking to Gaia, the goddess of Earth.
Hi William - What a gallery you have! My parents and I are looking forward to delving into your photography. Just browsing through, it is obvious you have a stellar collection. My family (the Woodworth's) met you at the Point on the Montage resort. You took a few pictures of myself, my mom and my dad. We would love for you to please send us those photos at your convenience. Thank you SO much!
Richard and Marge

My name is Lori Bragg and we meet while unburying our cars in Bryce Canyon in Oct 2013.
Seems like we just got back and it has been over 4 months.
I was wondering if you still had the pictures you took of everyone ?
Thank you and sorry it took so long to ask...
Your website is very cool and I think I need an adventure :)
We meet in Yosemite at Horsetail Falls. Your photo of the Bald Eagle is very good. I should have move over to your spot. All my photos are straight on mug shots. Of all the photos of the Eagle in flight only the last one was decent.
Viewed your gallery and like many of your photos.
Steve (2nd try in leaving note, hope this takes)
Hi Will. Love your photo of the Eagle. I should have move over to get a side view. All mine are frontal photos. It was great meeting you that day. I'm working on my next trip to Yosemite. Might be this week with the storm coming in.
Dennis & Linda Chase
My wife Linda and I had a real opportunity on the walkway by Parkers Lighthouse to talk with you and observe the gorgeous shots you were composing.

Cool stuff Will - keep it up (and the work too)!
Thijs van den Burg
Stunning images in your galleries William!!
Best regards, Thijs
Always enjoy looking at your albums
My wife and I met you and your group at Quechee Gorge on 4 October. Not sure where we were since we were on the bus headed back to Georgia from our New England trip. You took some pictures of us with the Gorge in the background. I love your photos! When I was young and in the Air Force, I was a Black and White enthusiast using the base's darkroom. Gave that up when I left the Air Force in 78. I still appreciate great photography though.
Good luck and keep taking those great photos.
Rex and Sharlene from Georgia.
How are you? We met on the bridge @ Milford,where you were filming and you also took a shot of me. Keep well and enjoy Mother Nature at its peak.
Hi,we met in Montpelier on Oct.2nd around 11h am. You have showed us how to take the picture of the State House and you took 2 pictures of us saying that you would send them to us later.
We hope you're having good time.
Lucille and Noëlline from Canada,Province of Quebec
You visited my home today in Stowe, Vermont! I was painting the barn door when you arrived; you took a few pictures of me on the tractor. I hope that you had the time to go to the abandoned home at the top of Stowe Hollow Road; it is a primier vantage point to take pictures of the Worchester Range in Stowe Hollow. It is one of my favorite Fall views!
If you read this message beforwe you leave Stowe, there is one other "must see" location -- Smuggler's Notch on Route 108.
Hello. This is Pia from the Best Western Waterbury Vermont. The German with the Italian name :) . Love your pictures. And thank you for staying with us :)
As promised. We met at Downtown Crossing in Boston this evening. I gave you directions to the waterfront.
Hi William - we came across you and your camera, 2 Ozzies ambling The Strip. Your friendly face paused us as we were taking in the ambience of this surreal city. Julia and David
Hi Wm! Thinking about your birthday and hope you have a Happy Day?...xx Marion
Will not be in Las Vegas for the show....good to see you again...your photos are always lovely to look at.
The pictures are beautiful but the thoughts and words in the poetry is SO right on. Just have to learn to live by it, that's the hardest part. Thanks for sharing
Hi William! I love your work. So happy to reconnect with you!
Hi, I hope your remember me. You came into Venice Beach Suites & Hotel a month or two ago when i was working the front desk and we talked about how i "NEVER BEEN TO LAS VEGAS",LOL I really do like your work its very nice. I wanted to say HI! Daniella Lee
Hi William...Your photos are very nice! Bobbie from Vistaprint
Hi, this is Ann from the picture place in OC fair. Just want to stop by to say hi while I was browsing your website. Your works are amazing. There are some that I like very much. I would love to have a chance to sell more of your arts. Thank you so much for your wonderful works.

William... So nice to meet you. My sister, mother and I loved spending time with your group at Multnomah Falls on June 24th. We enjoyed the hands in the air shot on the bridge and the group picture with the monks. Your work in unbelievable, and we loved your energy. It was such a pleasure meeting you and your group. Let us know where we can get copies of the pics you took of us. Hope all is well!
Mark & Laurie

I met you a few months back at the Santa Monica Pier. I'm one of the harbor guards. My name is Phil.
I got a few questions for you. What is a great beginner type camera for someone you wants to get into photography?
You can e-mail me at PLOY1980@yahoo.com
Hi William - Really enjoyed your presentation at the SCVPA last week. I knew you had a painters background. It's funny how many 'artists' wind up as photographers. And thanks very much for checking out my pix on my Facebook too. A 'like' from a money making successful photographer such as yourself is a great vote of confidence. I can use it right now too. Working on re-inventing myself from a digital 3D artist to photographer. I tell you William. I'll be very glad when the money flowing out starts to bring some money flowing in. Hey, thanks again.
Thank you SO much for the presentation last night at SCVPA! YOU PACKED THE HOUSE! Photography is a constant learning process, and I learned so much last night. I'm looking forward to getting out there shooting and applying some of your techniques to my own photos. Shooting with you in the near future would be such a treat!
William - I enjoyed your presentation last night at the Santa Clarita Photographer's Association Meeting. Yes, you are a color artist and I especially enjoyed hearing about the inverted polarizing filter technique used with rainbow photography. I am anxious to try this technique along with the mirror technique used in some of your photos. Hopefully, I'll get an opportunity to go on one of your photo field trips in the near future. Best regards, Felicia Tausig
Thank you for coming to our SCVPA meeting and giving an inspirational presentation. I look forward to possibly attending one of your tours in the future. In the meantime you poster from Yosemite that I won will be hanging on my wall. :)
Your presentation at the SCVPA last night was inspirational. I had just joined the group and this was my first meeting. What a pleasure and privilege it was listening to you share your thoughts as you described some of your methods and experiences and those breath-taking shots. Photography has been a life-long learning experience and I thirst for more. I shot film and slides twenty years ago in Paris and Giverny (Monet's estate)but now only do digital.
Thank you again for the fabulous presentation of your artistry (and for the calendar I won!). Lynne
Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your presentation tonight at the SCVPA meeting. Thank you so much for your time and the sharing of your talent.
Enjoyed your presentation at the SCVPA meeting tonight. Looking forward to experimenting with mirror device.
Hello William Me and my Sister the Pena. What do you have to do to see pictures. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org thank you and have bless day.
Where the Pena Sisters Meet on Rt 66..
Hey Will! My name's Megan... we met at Venice Beach last Thursday night while you were capturing the "Venice" street lights downtown. How did the postcard turn out!? Anyway I just checked out your website albums... you've taken some great pics! Nice meeting you :)
Hey Will, its Rudy remember me from Venice yesterday May 30, hope your Alzheimer will not kick you, LOL, anyway, keep in touch, have fun, Officer Mueller.
Great speaking with you today...digressions and all.
Thanks for speaking up.
As I drove away from my parking spot on windward, I saw you and your tripod on the sidewalk
pointed towards the sign over the street, and the evolving backlight of the sunset...
and asked myself...why am I not doing that?
Looking forward to your presentation to the SCVPA members in June!
Great experience to meet you at valley view in Yosemite NP, May 7th,2013. We have been waiting for you at Lower Yosemite Fall the next 2 mornings. But anyway, we got our rainbow pictures there. Also we got rainbow pictures with Half Dome at washburn point.
Thank you for the tips, how to use filters.
Michael and Uwe from Germany.
It was nice meeting you in yosemite and thanks for the tips. Kyle
HI! We met today in Yosemite, at lunch. Great photos!
Nancy and Sib Tonkin
What fun to meet you last evening, May 6, 2013, at the tunnel in Yosemite Valley viewing Bridalveil Falls. Your photos are certainly a joy to behold!!! You spoke of sending us a photo of the falls last nite at sunset. We went over and saw Yosemite Falls from the bridge to return this morn for sunrise and a possible rainbow in the mist...too cloudy tho. That photo will have to wait for another visit. Hope you find Grand Falls, just east of Flagstaff, AZ, when the water is flowing and the sun gives you a rainbow. If you wish, I can send you one of our photos of that falls:). The falls is on an Indian reservation.
Have a good day, Sib and Nancy Tonkin. Momgramma@hotmail.com
Talvez não lembre de nós.Somos brasileiros e estávamos em São Francisco quando tiraste para nós a foto nos twins. Parecíamos agarrados no muro para não cair.Tiramos uma foto sua também.Recebeste? Muito lindas as tuas fotos.Parabéns,
Great shots! Really dig the stuff I've seen on the site here. Thanks for the pointers on the 'World' bets at Four Queens (or, was it the Nugget?) week before last.
We met a few weeks ago when you were photographing the Bay Bridge Light installation from the San Francisco Embarcadero pier--definitely the place to see it. If you still have the shots you took of Pat and me it would be great to see them. Thanks and give my regards to 863 Marco Place.
Hi William, this is Thomas. I met you Friday night at the Santa Monica Pier while you were talking to Mannie. Really like your work. I told my cousin about your classes hopefully he can arrange time to take the classes.
Hi Will. Great meeting you today at the BBQ shack on Lincoln. The photography I see on your site is amazing. Bravo! I see there's a photographic genius / artist behind dem dere bones.... Take care.
Santee and Lorielle
You capture such beautiful photos!! And are truly talented. I am sure that you make many smile with your creative images and friendly disposition. It was a pleasure to "Brush with Fame". We found and bought your Calendars and Cards on Fremont Street. Thanks for the photo tips in Las Vegas.
Met you at the Rollercafe in Point Arena, hope your lunch was as good as mine. Your photography is beautiful!!! Love your work! Look forward to see how you shot Point Arena. Sue
Mike and Ari

Thank you for your time,

Hi Will, Thane Kraut. We met and talked with you on the hill overlooking Avalon. Certainly enjoyed your sharing your passion for photography and your pics of Avalon and the west coast! Wish you continued success and capturing beautiful moments of daily Life! Color outside the lines! Thane
We were the students that met you and your photo group while you were all taking pictures at sunset on the Oregon Coast. Thanks for the insight and tips regarding the time lapsed photography. We tried it that night and the results were great. We also looked at your Gallery of pictures and saw that you are really good! How can we join one of your trips? Hoping to hear from you sometime. Thanks again, Sebastian
Hi William, so great to meet you on the cable car in San Francisco today. I think the shots of me pulling the cable car's brake were great. I'd love it if you would send me a copy. It was fun to be your "model" or a moment! I've looked at your work on the website and its absolutely amazing. My dad was a photographer when I was younger but it's amazing what can be done nowadays with digital. Great work! Hopefully we'll talk soon.
Hi William, it was a pleasure to meet you out at Treasure Island. Got some great captures, but I did notice that the bridge lights were better on the drive up the ramp to get back into the city. Enjoyed going through and viewing your work/galleries. It is very impressive. Hope to run into you in the city or at the headlands in the future. Seeing that it is getting close to 1am, I doubt I'll make it to the headlands at sunrise today. Take care and have a safe trip home.
Hi - This is Cyndi = puple hair and red convertible Benz.... Thanks for the fun yesterday in Mendocino. I am not one to have my picture taken but I was lured in and enjoyed every minute. My husband is excited to see the pictures and enjoyed hearing of our adventure with you. Your gallery pictures are beautiful; I'll be checking them out further.
Hello William. I met you and your group in Bandon near Wizard's Hat and you took some photo's of me and we took some together. Would love a copy of some of them. Nice photo's. Take care and feel free to visit my current site, www.onthewallphoto.net
Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing your site with us at the Mendocino Hotel. Jamie Buckner
I am Elizabeth from Surf and Sand. I am so glad you stayed with us and I hope to see you again soon. I would love to see the photos you have taken.
Thanks for your insights into long exposure photography on the beach at Bandon. In a short time you piqued the interests of a couple of new low-light enthusiasts.
Thank you for your insights on the beach in Bandon. I look forward to learning more today!
Hello William,you took picture for me and my friend at Vegas that day. Can I see the picture? Thanks!
William, thank you so much for the the day...Had so much fun and learned a few things also. Can't wait to get together again. Many thanks to you, Paula and Diane for setting everything up.
Sam & Ida Rodriguez
William, Thank you so much for a great day, it was awesome!!! You Paula and Diane made it such an easy and comfortable day. Although we learned lots, we have a long ways to go so we will be back for an other Adventure!!!
Sam & Ida
Will, Thanks so much for all the help. Now I'm on a mission to get the equipment I need to become a better photographer. The adventure was exciting and rewarding.
Once again I enjoyed going on one of your adventures! Today was fun-filled with new discoveries!!! You truly have a unique and artistic way of seeing things. I am looking forward to the moonlight tour in a couple of weeks with you, and I can hardly wait for your trip in June to Oregon, seaside and waterfalls!!!

Good morning. We met on Thomas Hill. My husband and I were walking our dogs while you were taking pictures. I saw the one taken from the hill with the moon shining over downtown Los Angeles. We would like to have a copy of it. Do you have a collection of pictures taken around Los Angeles we could purchase? I noticed one taken at Placita Olvera I like. Also, have you ever photographed downtown from the hill during the day on a clear day?

Hi, William. This is Ruben, Judi and Lucky. Remember us? I almost fell over the clift at the Tunnel at your instruction? Just kidding! My pictures turned out beautiful! It was worth the time to wait for that complete sunset. However, the pictures I took up at Glazier Point turned out almost colorless. We shot them around midday. Is there something I could have done to get more color in my pictures? I'm referring to the ones that we took at a distance. The closeups were fine. If you want I can send you some of the pictures that turned out beautiful at the Tunnel and some of the ones that turned out lacking color at Glazier Point. Let me know and thank you very much for taking our picture. I would appreciate you sending me the ones that you took with your camera. Thanks.
We met at the Swinging Bridge in Yosemite. Great website! If you have time to forward the pic you got of my family crossing the bridge that would be fantastic! Thanks for taking the photo of us with our camera!!
I can't wait until my next workshop adventure! The pictures came out amazing. There are no words to describe your talent, work, love, and gift in which you hold all the keys to. "Wow" is all I can say.. WOW, WOW, WOW! Takes ones breath away.
WOW William! How do we even begin to explain what your Art does for us daily! If we had to tell you we glipmse heaven through your gifted eyes daily..we wouldn't be lying! Your work is a daily prayer! Thank you Dear Dear soul for the incredible journeys you allow us to take daily! We so love your work! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Love from us! Cape Town South Africa! Love always...Maliga and Naven Nair Pillay

Your work is such an impressive reminder of the wonderful world we live in. Whether it be Las Vegas or the landscapes and seascapes. You MAKE the viewer appreciate THE WORLD we share and I am thankful for your efforts and commitment to excellence.
Mike and Suzzana
Hi William! It was really nice to meet you and your group out on the Las Vegas Strip!!!
Thanks for the pointers on where to go for the best pics!! Your images on this site are truly awesome!! We didn't know that you were this good!!! Saw your Calendars there too!
Maybe we can come out to California for one of your adventures soon. Thx again!!
Hi Hartsie..luv the new gallery
Very impressive website to say the least.
hi. realy sharp eye to catch such wonderful nature!!!!
Hi William! I really like your landscape work! Hey, you may remember my girlfriend and I- you took our photo at horsetail falls in the Columbia River Gorge back in late June. The photo you took of us with my camera phone is still the best photo we have of the two of us! Hoping to get my hands on the one you took with your camera. Keep up the good work!
Fantastic galleries.... any hints on your settings to capture such fine details???? I was just in Las Vegas and tried to take some shots like yours and they just didn't come out... Not sure if it was a ISO or other setting that was off.... appreciate any input, just trying to learn how to take a better night shots. Thanks! Jv
William I just Viewed your gallery and I must say it was quite Impressive...I draw and Write Poetry plus have been in contact with many other artists throughout the Years....Remarkable Work!!! Kudos!!!! The Color Scheme is Excellent.... Best Regards....
Amazing images and colors.

Congratulations William on the postcard article. Very nice. I also checked out your Hawaii gallery. Nice work there too as usual. I am headed there on Oct. 15 for a week. I plan to take the doorless helicopter flight to photograph the Napali Coast on Kauai and then head for the Island of Hawaii to do some geology photography.
Keep up the good work.
I have been practicing every day to prepare for the photo adventure. Just got back from Vegas,and think I captured some great images I would love to share the photos with you before I attend your work shop. Hope to get your approval. Looking forward to seeing you, and learning from the pro.
I met you last week at your pal's photo shop. My friend needed to get a photo for his Canadian passport. It was nice meting you. I will take a gander at you work while here. Take care.
I'm going to Southern Utah around mid-October. Can you give me a good location for a sunrise and sunset shot at Zion or Bryce that doesn't require a great hike. And call me next time you and the old gang go out to dinner. I'll join you. You're still the best at landscaping, William.
Keep up the inspirational work William. I still hope to bump into you out int he field.
"Terrific RF interview Bill. I'm sure your students really appreciate you as their teacher because you have such vast experience. I had a Brownie too. Keep up the great work"

I love your photos. I have been browsing for a while looking for the Montana de Oro picture. I look forward to seeing it.
Your Galleries are amazing. Looking forward to the Photo Adventure.
I just stopped over at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and they do not carry ANY
post cards anymore. Can you suggest another few places that I can BUY your cards
in the Beverly Hills area. I might go to Santa Monica over the weekend, so
let me know some places that I can pick them up there as well.
It was so good talking to you this morning.
Joe and Cindy Randall
Cindy and I met you and your photo group back on June 26th at Munson Falls, Oregon. We tried that method you showed us where you trick the camera into using a different light setting for special effects on the photos several times on the rest of our vacation, got good results after a little practice. Cindy is pretty excited about it. Thanks again.
My name is Joan Pine and I love your post card. You really capture the
feeling of LA and the excitement of nite.
Congratulations on your great spread in Rangefinder! This is fabulous! With great compositions!! I love the vibrant colors in the images. You really capture the Moment in your imagery. Keep up the great work. We'll see you on the next Coastal Adventure!

My wife and I met you at Silver Creek Falls State Park. You directed us to this website and we must say your work is absolutely amazing! Very much a pleasure to meet you sir and hope our paths cross again. Best Wishes! -Marty and Lee Peterson Tillamook, Oregon
I had an opportunity to run into you at Multnomah Falls while driving home from a trip to California. I visited your website this evening and was blown away by your photos. They are simply glorious! Had I known I was in the presence of greatness, I would never have stopped to talk to you yesterday and solicited advise! I think I'll sell my camera now...
Seriously, it was nice meeting you, and your photos really are phenomenal. Your passion is obvious and you have the right personality for connecting with people. Perhaps someday I'll even have an opportunity to attend one of your hands-on workshops - I realize I'm at a point where hands-on training would be of tremendous benefit. One can always hope.
Sandy and Don Willetts
Don and I want to thank you for offering to take our picture for us at Horsetail Falls today. We really enjoyed talking with you and we thank you for the chance to visit your web site. Both of us were really impressed with the photographs which we viewed on the web. Your photos are truly a work of art. Your web site is very creative in the way it is laid out and your photos are beautifully displayed.
We will be sure to visit your site from time to time to see new photos as they are added.
Thank you again.

You have all the requisites and it shows in your wonderful photos. Thanks Chipp
Ricardo & Loranda
My wife and I were just in Yosemite while you were photographing the beautiful Rainbow with your large photo group. Thanks for your advice regarding the Polarizing filter.

We just looked at your website and you really have some amazing images!! Come to Spain sometime soon??

Our group met you along the California Coastline where you were leading a group of photographers at sunset. It was an amazing evening for us!! Our images were really spectacular.

Hey Bill, Glad you called, love the site and all your pictures. keep up the great work. Jon Allen
The seeds that fell in good soil stand for those who hear the message and retain it in a good and obedient heart, and they persist until they bear fruit. Luke 8:15
One of the ways to bear fruit is to pass it on. Teach somebody else. That is the secret of growth. Whatever you learn, as soon as you learn it, pass it on to someone. Whoever teaches, grows the most -- because when you teach you show that youve not only heard it, but youve incorporated it and can communicate it to others.--Rick Warren
Your devotion to teaching others is apparent...
Absolutely beautiful photos!
William awsome work! I am in awe! Very soothing and inspiring!
William totally awesome photos!I am in awe. Love them all! Beautiful work! Tellie/ Tlodge

a master of landscape photography, William! Technically brilliant, artistic and poetic.
Infused with powerful mood, atmosphere and spirit.

Thanks so much for the great day shooting in LA. I really enjoyed it and I will most definitely join you again. Both you and Dana were very, very helpful and it made for a most enjoyable. I love the images I walked away with.
Thank you for showing our group a fabulous time! Both you and Dana are the BEST!!
Everything was wonderful! Thank you again!!!
Thanks for such a wonderful day of shooting L.A. yesterday. Your locations, suggestions and wonderful joy in all things photographic were a delight to experience. I've been playing with my shots for hours now, and hope you'll see them on my Picasa site later. Catalina anyone????
I had the pleasure of meeting you earlier this afternoon on stage at Walt Disney Concert Hall after I talked a bit about the organ.
hey William its Ian from verizon Wireless in Santa Monica...you truly have an amazing eye, these pictures are absoultely amazing! Ive definitely seen your work around before, it all looks unreal! Good luck teaching your workshop, talk to you soon!
Wonderful work. The lighting looks like something from Thomas Kinkade. Are these actually perfect lighting moments or is a lot of it digital darkroom magic? Either way they look great. I have some great raw material, but would like to learn more about photography and enhancement of existing images. Thank you for sharing your gift.
This is Heike. I met you in Maggios in Big Bear Lake when you were there with your group. Hope you had a great dinner. Your images are beautiful!! We are back in Santa Barbara.

Happy New Year, William! Hope to join you soon again on another great workshop!
Awsome Y.National Park images!...I live ajoining the Foothills Parkway, a senic drive in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in TN.

Need to renew my account, enjoy working on Pbase. These tropical lizards are seen mosely in the southeast and the tropical islands. They don't get frozen in our TN cold winters.

Thanks again for your tips last night at Treasure Island. The shots of SF and the Bay Bridge look great.
Hi emmanuel from TI/SF, gotta see results from sf it was really fun just in viewfinder looked good. I'll take a look at desertscapes (love that stuff). Makes me want to dust off my equip and take a class....eh
I must finish my previous guest book signing. There was a glich and lost connection. First it should read "slice of beauty". Also, I am looking forward to the possibility of attending one of your upcoming workshops. My daughter is an inspiring photographer, and would love me to be more involved. From my observation of your work, I am sure you could give me some pointers. It is truely amazing how you capture the moment. Breathtaking would be a more accurate description. Can't wait to meet you and your talent.
Lori Bauer and Richard Quaglia
Hi William! Thanks for the poster!!!!!!!! Lori at Lone oak Lodge and Richard too.
What talent!! Makes me feel like I am actually there when viewing your work. Really reflects your passion for beauty and everything natural around us. Will be purchasing a poster when I am able to narrow down which slice if beauty to choose from.
I met you last Wednesday evening at C-Level while you were taking a picture of San Diegos skyline. It was a pleasure meeting you and thank you in advance for sending me your beautiful picture. If ever you're headed to Mazatlán, Mx., let me know.

Harbor Island, San Diego, huh? You've come such a long way from Arizona Highways.
Larry and Karen Tampa Bay
We met at the crap's table at g/g casino back in late October. Thanks for the pointers on the table. We looked at your sight and it blew us away. Wish we could learn which side of the camera to look through to get close to that quality. Do you have a tips section on your sight?
Great to have met you today in San Diego at Harbor Island. Both of us were capturing photos of the San Diego Skyline I enjoyed looking at the photos on your website, they look great. Take Care.
This is Mehreen and we met briefly at the Eiffel tower, Las Vegas when you were shooting the strip. I visited your website and simply have no words to express. I love the pictures and wish that I was there to learn from you. Please let me know when you'll visit Dubai.

William, I've enjoyed the time we spent talking about all the great spots along the Calif coast. I hope that I can visit most of them while we're on our honeymoon. Your galleries are breathtaking, and it was great hearing how you planned and took the pictures. Thanks for the secret spots that not too many photographers know about. Looking forward to sharing the results with you. Have a great trip to Yosemite. Hope to join you on a trip in the near future. See you in November.
We met you in Las Vegas where you were leading a group of photographers along the "Vegas Strip". We saw many of your images in your Galleries and were very impressed. I also tried a couple of the areas that you suggested for photos, and I got some great shots!!
Thanks my friend!! We hope to meet up with you again.
Rich and Marion

I will pass along your advise to my Daughter who is majoring in photography. Please send me some info on your workshops, and the cost.

Hello William. Once again I enjoyed the information you shared at the most recent workshop (Palisades, Long Beach)that I attended. You are such an amazing photographer with an artist's eye for subject matter, lighting, composition and outstanding color. I also appreciated Dana's assistance--especially with the tripod. I am glad Diane Fritz coordinated this workshop with you!
And I felt so privleged to be with you on the Yosemite workshop. I will always remember the beauty of it, the comradrie as well as the photo tips.
It was great talking to you yesterday and thanks for the tips, I am dying to go out at try them for myself. I thought about going down to the same spot during work but no one would get any fishing done again with a police car parked there.
I hope you found parking downtown and enjoyed the Tin Fish restaurant.
hello this is adrian and leahya we met at the travelodge in san deigo in the pool area your photographs are beautiful.. thank you for the advice on the hotels and things in vegas
adrian and leahya
Thank you for taking us on a fabulous Photo Adventure! Everybody had a terrific time...Lots of fun and learned many new things! I can't wait until our next Photo Adventure! As Sylvia said "Your enthusiasm is contagious" and your pictures the BEST!
Thank you again my friend! See you soon!
Hernan E. Enriquez
William, I am spellbound by the beauty of your photos, so inspiring!
William, Love your work! You capture a mood in your images.
William, I want to add my appreciation for the "Coastal Adventure." I like your style of instruction. Your enthusiasm is contagious. Sharing your "places" to photograph makes me think more of the places I visit. Thanks again.
William, I can't wait to attend another workshop with you. My Dad and I had a fantastic time in Yosemite. I'll be sure to email you the picture my Dad took of our snowball fight during the traffic jam on the way to Mariposa.
Great pictures Bill
Rob here, What a challenging day we all had on our Coastal Adventure Moonlight Walk Workshop . I think Diane; our Adventure organizer named this day. August 23, 2010
Just to let everyone know William, took us to places Ive I have always been aware of and have viewed from a boat looking at the land mass but never visited by car with a camera. The Magazine Westways published by the Automobile Club AAA has written articles about some of the places we visited
Our 35 mile Adventure took us from Redondo Beach Pier through the Palos Verdes Hills with several private view photo opportunities which are not accessible to the public. Then on into San Pedro and later to Long Beach, Shoreline Village, Shoreline offered changeling photo opportunities due to the light transition during the beginning of the rising moon and later the setting sun over the Desmond bridge, then the light after the sun had set.Shoot Parker Light house, Rainbow Lagoon Lighthouse and the Queen Mary.
Ive looked at t my pictures with the meta data for the second time to better understand some of the techniques/lessons you presented to all of us.
Thank You & Dana for the Coastal Adventure.
Anthony and Shariff
It was a pleasure to meet you at Shoreline Village in Long Beach. You were teaching a class of Photographers and I was with my girlfriend. We look forward to attending one of your upcoming events.
You capture such beautiful photos!! And are truly talented. It was a pleasure to "Brush with Fame". I am sure that you make many smile with your creative images and friendly disposition. Thanks for the photo tips at the Pier.

I talked with you about the custom made shirts that my wife, Tracie, makes. We talked about the Bob's Big Boy in Downey on Wednesday night.
Love your work and totally understand the protection you take using the signature and watermark on your images. The ability to protect ones images is never understood by amateurs and thieves. Keep up the inspirational efforts!! I have just ordered a number of your beautiful prints.
Thank you for the suggestion while I was at Light House this evening.
Hope that I can join to your lecture or trip some time in the future.

We met yesterday at Bed, Bath, and Beyond in West LA. I am the AC/DC lady that gave you a coupon. I wasn't going to contact you and then my husband and I looked at the card and your photos are beautiful.

Hi William, my daughter (Christina) and I met you at Paris Las Vegas a few nights ago while you were taking pictures of the fountain outside the hotel.

Hello Mr. Hartshorn
Your style of photography is truly impressive. I seem to have become an instant fan!

William (Bill) Lawson
Dear William: I attended your presentation at Bagnall's Camera Expo this last Sunday and enjoyed your presentation. I wished that the program hadn't been so rushed as there were a lot of photos of yours that I would have liked to have had more time to view and discuss your techniques. You indicated that you might share one of your photographs with the attendees and I would appreciate that very much. I look forward to attending another of your presentations in the near future. Regards, Bill
It was very nice to meet you today at the camera expo in Anaheim. I love your photography! I hope someday to develop the skills to reach your level of brilliance. I also, will keep a look out for any seminar's that you will be hosting! Hope to see you in the future and once again thank you very much for creating breath taking images.
Krystal Richardson- Hemet, CA
Enjoyed your program today at the Bagnall's Camera Expo. You were my first presenter I saw last year. I must make a point to take some evening pictures.

Thank you again for your visits and comments on my pbase galleries and for the invitation to review your work. Your many successes and accomplishments are well deserved given the extreme beauty of your images. I'm not one to give flattery when its not due, but I truly must say your images are far above high quality. You have mastered so many techniques and your photographic vision is superb. I have many questions I'd love to ask and perhaps will post another note privately. I certainly hope our paths will cross some day, I'd very much enjoy meeting you in person.

Nice meeting you on the dock. The local website is slofiberfish.org. We're always looking for pics to dress the site up. I'm the chief photographer. I'm going to upgrade to a d60 Nikon so the shots of wildlife improve. It's hard to catch a whales tale, they don't pose. We enjoyed your pics, The colors are hot!
Your photographs are amazing, full of reverie and vitality. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing them and will visit them often.
Truly inspirational captures. Thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your gifted galleries, seems like each image has a completely different X-factor to it. Great work!
You never cease to amaze me with your pics. I have a few up in my house and Lisa has a couple in her room....we'll have to go shoot again next time I come out to visit mom and dad and the rest of the family.
Hi William, I certainly would love to go shooting with you. I love your style and the photos are wonderful. Congratulations..

I have a public relation agency and write for a lot of German magazines. Do you remember? Would be nice to stay in contact, our homepage is www.pyter.de
Your photos are soooo great! Really the best!
Greetings from Germany - Diana and Axel
Hi Bill; met you at Outback on Monday night.It was a good conversation eventhough the Raiders lost which killed my parlay. Take care Frank
William, I have a Screen Saver of Catalina Island you did in 2000. I wondered if you had some updated photos I could have access to. Some of the Catalina Island pictures are out of focus just a little. I have a 22" Optiquest from viewsonic. Would love to see another screen saver Northern California. Thanks, Jan Hubbard from San Ramon CA.
Your pictures are always great to look at! Hope you don't get stuck on the computer to much as I know you and I love film! Hope to see you soon!
