Biography: William A. Shields

My interest in photography began more that four decades ago while completing a journalism degree with an elective course entitled “Photojournalism”. The course taught me that the camera is only a tool to help me better see what I’m looking at. I believe that is the basis for all great photography: creatively recording and interpreting what is in the mind’s eye.

I feel privileged to have earned a living using photography to produce advertising for clients in more than a dozen industries, and never lost enthusiasm for the medium as a hobby and now a fine art business.

I have traveled extensively, cameras, lenses and tripods in hand, to more than a two dozen countries and hope to share some of my experiences and interpretations with you through my images.
