Hailing from New York Bill
Bright started taking pictures with his fathers SLR at a very young age,
taking interest in the manual settings from the very beginning. Since
then, both through high school and formal training at Munson-Williams
Proctor Institute of Art in Utica, New York he's taken his passion for
photography to a new level. While photography isn't his professional
vocation just yet (he's a web designer), it does serve as his greatest
creative outlet. He usually shoots with a Canon 35mm.
Bill has found many artists that inspire him, the strongest of which is
Lucien Clergue. He's also fascinated by the work of Annie Leibovitz and
Bill Brandt. He likes dramatic lighting conditions but prefers to
"create his atmosphere using natural light, as opposed to using hot
lamps and flash. It does give an eerie, otherworldly quality to his work.
