My Favorite Photographs from 2014

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015

Happy New Year!  I finally put together my favorite photographs from 2014.  It is always helpful to take the occasional assessment of our own creative progress. You might be interested in reading an essay I wrote on the subject five years ago in my On Landscape column for Outdoor Photographer on this subject.  Since I started teaching private workshop sessions in Yosemite, I’ve been visiting Yosemite Valley much more often so you will see a batch of new Yosemite images taken this past year.

If you have been following my work this past year, you know that my big trip of the year was to Antarctica last January. Click here to read my Outdoor Photographer magazine On Landscape column, and recent Antarctic Dreams portfolio in OP and see below!

I have numbered each image, which will make it easier for you to let me know which ones are your favorites.  It will be fun and helpful for me to have your feedback.  I will value a list of favs, or general thoughts on what work you respond to the most.  After I assess your feedback, I will then make a final edit of 10-15 that are my top selects of the year.  My criteria for that final selection will be based on which images I feel best represent my personal vision and style rather than the most popular ones.  If you have your own post of top images for 2014, please add your link in your comments below.

I look forward to your comments and favorites for my 2014 portfolio.  Enjoy and please share with your friends!

I wish you a year full of the gifts of nature, peace and love,  Bill

PS  The photographs  below are in chronological order.

My Favorite Photographs of 2013

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Happy New Year!  I have finally put together my favorite photographs from 2013.  It is always helpful to take the occasional assessment of our own creative progress. The annual ritual of posting a “best of” has now gone crazily viral.  You might be interested in reading an essay I wrote on the subject several years ago in my On Landscape column for Outdoor Photographer on this subject.  I am pleased with this selection, which includes new Impressions of Light images, iPhone images, as well  landscapes taken around my home and in nearby Yosemite.  Since I started teaching private workshop sessions in Yosemite, I’ve been visiting Yosemite Valley much more often so you will see a batch of new Yosemite images taken this past year.

This year I have numbered each image, which will make it easier for your to let me know which ones are your favorites.  It will be fun and helpful for me to have your feedback.  I will value a list of favs, or general thoughts on what work you respond to the most.  After I assess your feedback, I will then make a final edit of 10-15 that are my top selects of the year.  My criteria for that final selection will be based on which images I feel best represent my vision and style.  If you have your own post of top images for 2013, please add your link in your comments below.

I look forward to your comments and favorites for my 2013 portfolio.

Happy New Year,  Bill

My Favorite Images from 2012

Friday, January 18th, 2013

I am finally pulling together my favorite photographs from 2012.  It is always helpful to take the occasional assessment of our own creative progress. The annual ritual of posting a “best of” has gone viral.  You might be interested in reading an essay I wrote on the subject several years ago in my On Landscape column for Outdoor Photographer on this subject.  I am pleased with the selection, which includes new Impressions of Light images, iPhone images, studio macro setups as well  as landscapes taken around my home and in nearby Yosemite.  Since I started teaching private workshop sessions in Yosemite, I’ve been visiting Yosemite Valley much more often so you will see a batch of new Yosemite images taken this past fall and winter.

This year I have numbered each image, which will make it easier for your to let me know which ones are your favorites.  It will be fun and helpful for me to have your feedback.  I will value a list of favs, or general thoughts on what work you respond to the most.  After I assess your feedback, I will then make a final edit of 10-15 that are my top selects of the year.  If you have your own list of top images for 2012, please add your link in your comments below.

Regarding my private Yosemite sessions, you might enjoy seeing the Flickr group that I started for my students to share their photographs with each other:  William Neill Private Yosemite Workshops.

I look forward to your comments and favorites for my 2012 portfolio.

Happy New Year,  Bill

A Short Walk in a New England woods

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Greeting!

On Labor Day, my family and I flew back east to visit family in New Jersey.  We also drove up to New England for the wedding of my close friends John Weller and Cassandra Brooks.  John is a former assistant of mine here in the Yosemite area, and now has gone on to do great things, including a masterpiece of photography and writing , Great Sand Dunes National Park: Between Light and Shadow.   He is a SeaWeb Fellow and was awarded a prestigious Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation in 2009.  I am so proud to be a part of his development as an artist.

See http://www.johnbweller.com/http://lastocean-project.org/ and http://www.cassandrabrooks.com/.

The day after the wedding, we walk down a country road  for brunch in New Boston, New Hampshire, where the wedding took place.  On the short return walk, I found this images along the roadside.  With my iPhone, I a few quick frames while our group walked on.

Beauty is around us every day, everywhere, if you only slow down long enough to SEE.

Kind regards,  Bill
