William Neill Photography from 1996

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

We have now moved on to 1996 in Celebrating 30 Years of my business.  1995 is a hard year to top, but here we go anyway!

The photographs here reflect my travels that year, including a spring trip to New England to work on a New England book of my landscape photography.  Sadly, the publisher pulled my contract before I could finish.  I also photographed a major assignment for Canon USA’s corporate calendar for 1997 with the theme on national parks which took me to Texas, Kentucky, Florida and Colorado besides California locations.

Enjoy, and please Share if you Like!  All photographs created with a Wista 4×5 field camera, and 4×5 inch transparency film.

Celebrating 30 Years – 1995

Monday, September 15th, 2014

My “Celebrating 30 Years” project moves on to the year 1995.  A few days after Labor Day in 1984, I quit my job as Photographer at The Ansel Adams Gallery, making the leap of faith to start my own business William Neill Photography.  In the process of posting a few images from each year, I am gaining a tremendous perspective on my efforts and successes as my work evolved.  The excitement has built up each time I have searched my massive Lightroom catalog for the next year’s selection.  Below, I have posted eleven images from 1995, and as I do so, I wonder if I will ever have such a spectacular year again!  I was 41, happily married, had been published in four books featuring my work and traveling often to teach workshops.  I was also working on a second book for the Exploratorium Museum and Chronicle Books called The Color of Nature.  My wife and I took to extended camping trips to the deserts of Utah, and to the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park as you can see in the images below.  We also traveled to the east coast, shown by two photographs below taken in Maine.

My favorite photograph, and happily my best-selling fine print is the first image shown below:  Dawn, Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Canada 1995.  Only 15 prints remain in the Limited Edition of 150.

Enjoy, and please add your comments below.  All photographs created with a Wista 4×5 field camera, and 4×5 inch transparency film.

Thanks,  Bill

Celebrating 30 Years of William Neill Photography

Monday, September 8th, 2014

For those of you who don’t follow my Facebook page, last week I stared a series of posts called  Celebrating 30 Years of William Neill Photography.  The idea was to post one image from each of those 30 years of photographs.  I pride myself in being a tough editor of my own work, so that only my strongest work is “released” into the world.  When seeing several equally favorite photographs in one year, I’ve opened up my editing to share a few more images from each year.

The series here were all made with my Wista 4×5 metal field camera, with 4×5 inch color transparency film in 1991.  I have never organized my large format work by year before, and I must say it has been very rewarding to see as a reward for three decades of dedication, hard work and the joy of reconnecting to my visual discoveries!

Enjoy and please share with your friends.

Stay tuned for more, and please feel free to add comments below.

Kind regards,  Bill

During Sierra Art Trails this past weekend, we had three ladies walk into my living room display of prints. One of them looked at the first print by the door, a 30×40 inch print of this image, gasped, and then tears of emotion flowed from her eyes she was so inspired by the print. We talked a bit, she asked about the print’s price, and we showed her a smaller print. After browsing a while, she and her friends left. The next day, she returned to buy the small print. She said she would hang it where she could see it everyday.

Of course, I was deeply moved by this reaction. I have had a long and blessed career, but sometimes it seems like a never-ending marathon to keep business going. This weekend I was reminded that sharing the beauty I find is such an honor and privilege. My passion for “landscapes of the spirit” lives on, inspired by the beauty around us everyday, and by when my imagery connects my experience to others.

Captured with my 4×5 camera in 1992 using a 120mm film back.

Enjoy and please share!
