I just sent this post to a bunch of my friends as I agree with most of what you’re saying here and the way you’ve presented it is awesome.

Mr. Bill,

I am young and I am a student. I am about to finish school with a degree in marketing and I am planning to enroll in a short program for photography, because that is what I really want to do. I would love to know what school you attended and where you received your training and experience. There are so many options but if there is one thing I know, it is that your gallery portrays the style and effect I wish to accomplish myself. My e-mail address is should you choose to share your story with less than an amateur with goals to be more than a professional.

Dave Hein20-Jun-2009 05:29

I could write a Profile Page message exactly the same as yours... but then I'd be accused of plagiarism. So we'll have to walk this path together... and hold metaphorical hands... we're on the same journey. :)

Question: Kodak RetinaIIc. Is it worth keeping. In perfect shape. Thanx.
sussa20-Apr-2009 19:42
thanks for the joyride!

strolling around in your art galleri gave me ear-to-ear-smiles, ideas, laughs and a big portion of wanting to learn more, see more.....and laugh more.

i´ll be back =)

Amazing galleries you have here. I did vote on many of your images.
Thank you for visiting my pages too. If you have time and will you can visit my "other" galleries:

And absolutely love "what have I learned ..." stuff - Lots of it so true for many of us. Did you have one about mistakes removed/amended?

Best regrads,
Pablo Yez23-Mar-2009 19:20

Just had a "walk" through your galleries -- a joy. Got to your page by following back on a very nice comment you wrote for one of my photos a while back (it was one of the images that only photographer, and certain ones, seem to appreciate).

As importantly, I also loved your comments/list on "what have a I learned". I gotta say that I agree with each of the points on your list, including the comment about the pbase-experience having improved you. After 3 years I let my PB account lapse... money was tight and I was trying out a more commercial page to try to offset my photography "habit" 'spences (

So what have I learned: I really miss the community here at PBase and am very glad they let me be a squatter for now. I'll probably renew my account here next month. The way I look at it the "other" webpage analogous to having a very nice office, this however is not replacement for having a nice home (aka PBase).

Gilles Navet07-Mar-2009 09:22
Totalement Fan de ta dernière galerie.........
Tu es un photographe étonnant
Je t'ai ajouté dans mes Fav pour venir plus souvent te voir
Fay Stout01-Nov-2008 16:35
With many thanks for your comments and votes on my "Artists at Work" gallery. Your photography is so inspiring... I love your perpectives and your crazy sense of humor. It definitely brightens my day! Fay
Guest 27-Oct-2008 05:28
Love your work
enbphotography26-Oct-2008 00:46
I empathize with you on the "shyness" factor. I like your therapy session... I may heed your advice!!! :P Great shots!
Stu02-Oct-2008 16:10
Despite often seeing and enjoying your galleries in the popular galleries list I've just realised I hadn't added you to my favourites before now. Oops! An oversight on my part.

Anyway, keep up the good work. I think there are plenty of galleries I haven't seen yet so will take a closer look now.


Wonton 30-Sep-2008 18:55
WOW, Down another road to excellence. Great work, great art. Time has been your friend, look how you've grown. Hope all is very well.
Bill Warren 07-Sep-2008 13:31
Great work! Nice subject matter.
Marcia Rules01-Sep-2008 16:56
Great work---I especially love the outdoor classroom and the whiteout collection. I just bought the 450D and use it more than my 5D (expensive paperweight thanks to the dust on sensor issues). I just joined PBase and set up my first gallery---take a look!...Marcia Rules
Guest 27-Aug-2008 17:50
An amazing diversity of subject matter and a very imaginative display.
Guest 17-Aug-2008 18:59
Bill, I am thinking of getting the 450D. Do you still have high regard for it? Thanks, Barry (Email me at Or go to my Gallery Barryn)
nafis azad 07-Aug-2008 01:22
...your magnify me is probably one of the most original body of work i have seen recently... actually made me laugh...

great work... its simple enough to be stunning...
Mikael Larsen13-Jul-2008 15:29
Your galleries are very interesting and inspiring - I must say. Definitely have to go back and look again. Thanks for comments on my galleries.
Moshe Kwart 07-Jul-2008 20:06
My last message didn't seem to load. Ansel would have been pleased to have your Elk Barn in his gallery. Your photography is inspiring. I am moving back towards black and white - the first time with a digital camera. Are you willing to share technique? Do you shoot raw and convert to b/w? Do you shoot in b/w? What on camera filtration? What in camera digital filtration? Suggestions for the range and strength that you have achieved? Thanks.
Raymond Psaila 23-Jun-2008 21:17
I Really Enjoyed Viewing your XSi Set Bill

I to just bought the Canon EOS 450D here in the UK , your images are really pleasing , I like two in particular first the Image is of the Ford front end and secondly the Strawberry Fields Image.

I have 3 lens that I will use with My 450D Conan kit lens 18-55mm IS , Canon Ef 28-135mm IS USM and Canon Ef 70-200mm f2.8 L USM (the last I have not used yet) Maybe you could if you have time give me any advice as to shooting what I call "Natural light" images, close to Dusk or Dawn .I think you have a stunning eye for light .
Doug Kessler22-Jun-2008 21:53
Hi Bill-
I think that time spent looking at your galleries is time well spent. Wonderful collection.

Jean-Claude Liehn08-Jun-2008 05:06
Creative indeed. Congratulations for your work.

Hi Bill. I love your home town. I lived there for 3 yrs recently and have many friends there still. I have some photos from Franklin St that you may enjoy.
I see some of NC in your photos, but you definitely add your own unique touch to your images. Great job!

Hi Bill. Thanks for stopping by. :)
Guest 12-Feb-2008 02:41
Hi Bill

Just wanna say your galleries are great...more important is that they are organic as presented in an effective way. I got a lot of inspirations from them indeed. I can't help putting them into my favor lists. Keep it up...looking forwards for more of your works to come.

All the bests

Guest 07-Jan-2008 09:59
Instead on writing a million times under your images, how much I like them, I make it short: Your images are so artistic and impressive, at the same time original and proving that you have found your one characteristic style by all means. This is, why I added you to my favourites. Cheers, Claudia
Sam X01-Jan-2008 04:07
Happy New Year... and many happy shots in a new 2008. Thanks for Your support

Guest 06-Dec-2007 03:18
Hi Bill, Thanks so much for your comments on my black and white gallery and for boosting my confidence. I have just started playing around with black and white and I'm still not sure what I'm doing. After viewing your excellent work, I can see I have a long way to go. I enjoyed your work very much. You have a wonderful sense of humor. I'm Looking forward to seeing more.
Walter Otto Koenig05-Dec-2007 05:43
Hi Bill,

I really like you work a lot. You have a great eye.

Best Wishes, Walter
Susanne v. Schroeder16-Nov-2007 16:34
Hi Bill! Your 'Ansel made me color blind' (love the title!!) is outstanding!! Do you shoot in B&W or in color and convert to B&W with software? Whatever you do - the results are stunning. Susanne
Dominic Anthony13-Nov-2007 15:44
Thanks, Bill. I didn't intend to get into photographing motorcycles, but the cycle people I meet at shows really like the images so I think there will be more emphasis in the future. 'Good stuff on your site; I'll check back. - Cheers.
Doug Kessler07-Nov-2007 03:01
Hello Bill-
It's been almost 2 years since I first visited your galleries and viewed your nascent music gallery.
Oh my, how far you have progressed as an artist. I appreciate how you have stayed in touch through your comments.
I'm sure that I have read your observations on your profile page before but they ring true for me also even to this very day. You have developed quite body of work here and I look forward to seeing much more in the future.
If you ever come to California, look me up.
Greg Little27-Oct-2007 12:51
Hi Bill. Thanks for the nice comment.

You have a wonderful collection of shots. You sure don't lack creativity! Keep up the great work.

Guest 25-Oct-2007 14:18
Hi Bill!
Thanks for sharing all your super work! There are so many interesting images to look at. I have to think about you took them all, so I've added you to my favourites! Lots of inpsiration for a budding new photogrpaher!
Susanne v. Schroeder13-Oct-2007 15:35
Hi Bill - enjoyed viewing your fabulous collection. I'll come back for more...
What I really enjoyed is your "What have I learned so far". When I read it I thought - hey, there is someone else who feels just like me... I can identify with each of your statements. Especially the one about shooting people... just can't get myself to do it yet.
Paul Teixeira02-Sep-2007 18:09
Dear Bill,

Thanks for your kind comments on my stuff. As I said: I love your vision and the way you manage to capture it. A real feast for the eye. Please keep photographing!

Best regards,

Paul Teixeira
Robert Levy27-Aug-2007 02:07
You have a wonderful eye and the ability to capture the image at the precise moment that makes it work.
John Stevenson14-Aug-2007 05:45
Thank you so much for your helpful comments on my images. I wish I could lend some help to you, but your images are so flawless that there is no tips for me to give.

Thanks again and happy shooting.

Secondly, your work is really great, so creative!
"The less I think, the more creatively I shoot": Please, stop thinking at all for our pleasure! I try my best also to reach creation, even if my approach differs a little bit from yours, but so, something rings into my head through your pics.

under merlefest pictures......its the caroline POND band.........nice pictures :)
Doug Kessler20-May-2006 06:35
Bill, thanks for your comment on my Saturn gallery. I think you are also capturing a spiritual experience when you convey music as a photograph.
I hope the Merle thing is a reference to Merle Haggard, a Bakersfield native.
Your shots are wildly emotional and joyous. Post more when you can.
John Stevenson05-May-2006 23:09
Very interesting images! I had seen this effect before, but never knew how it was done, thanks for sharing! It causes a very surreal effect.
