Born in San Mateo, California, William attended and graduated from the Brooks Institute School of Photography. In an attempt to capture the transitory beauty of life and nature his work merges the traditional and digital photographic landscape. William's goal is to create a seren, self-expressive image that reflects the wonder and peace found in his experiences in life. He believes it is not what is seen but what is expressed that makes photographic art. William's photographs are made using digital capture and extensive digital post-production, sometimes combining multiple photographs to create one realistic image.
