People can hear the happiness and passion in his voice and know immediately why people open up to him the way “In Focus” segments reveal they do.
Bill wanders the streets of the region keeping a lookout for unusual characters, collects stories. Others tell him about people doing interesting things, especially in sports, another’s of Bill’s passions. He then spends time with his subjects before picking up his camera and beginning his shoot.
Bill has the luxury to work on three stories a week. These pieces are banked and the best appears on “In Focus.”He wanted to attend the classes, but they are expensive and up to the photographer, in most cases, to pay his way.
“In Focus” spots Bill has seen deal with entrepreneurs of a modest but successful kind, people who do great things with food, and, of course, sports, particularly kids and sports. It’s good to know someone is on the prowl looking for these positive, unusual stories and capturing them so entertainingly.
In addition to paying attention wherever he goes, Bill says he gets ideas from newspaper articles, TV spots, and messages to his Facebook page. In addition to sports, Bill says he is drawn to dance, for one reason because it’s so visual and plays so well on the camera. His daughter Lily and Emily also inspire him.
Stories and people have been the staple of both newscasts and literature from time immemorial. Bill says his decision is based on the characters he finds. So far, he has been a voice on “In Focus” segments. The absence of a reporter may be one of the elements that denote them as so different.
