William’s efforts have enabled him to develop a strong relationship with his camera and surroundings. His devotion to nature is seen through his photos, and seem to persist a common linkage between the land he is drawn to and the marks it leaves behind.
“For us Americans, particularly those who grew up in the Midwest, Asia is a land of mystery and enchantment, not just visually, but intellectually as well. Before I became a serious photographer I spent many months over the course of several years in Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and elsewhere. Visually, Asia is full of places with stunning imagery. There is no single image, or even collection of images, that can capture the vast differences in geology, life, and culture that exists there. Japan during the cherry blossom season, bamboo forests in the east, and Hindu and Buddhist temples in south; the list goes on and on.”
As striking imagery of picturesque landscapes become a central theme, it is not hard to find an image that one is deeply drawn to in William’s portfolio. He finds harmony and balance within nature, where his viewers experience a variation of sentiments, struck by artistry of man made and nature’s claim. With Nikon’s D800 series, he says, he was able to achieve great stability in his works.
