I SHOOT PEOPLE - PLACES - AND THINGS BUT MOSTLY PEOPLE!
THE FINE ART OF STUDIO AND REPORTAGE PHOTOGRAPHY.
--With over 30 years of professional photography experience working with People, Places and Things! I’ve worked nationally and internationally, on such contracted work as, Portraits, Beauty, Swimwear, Glamour, and Editorial Commercial photography. Hello I’m Bill Sutherland; - My experiences in professional photography is not a sudden urge or the purchase of new a digital camera but has spanned over three decades and crossed into 20 something foreign countries.
Spanning Europe, Asia and the US, -two wars, different mentalities, locations, East Coast/ West Coast mythologies, and so many cultures.
I started shooting at an early age in 1958! It was then I learned to show depth of field, correct lighting and “Gestalt” in my photography. In the 70’s I left school to be inducted into the Army and after my initial 2 year commitment ended in January 1974 I traveled back to Germany. By late1978; I was working assisting two famous German photographers in Munich, Germany. From there I landed in the Alps of Berchtesgaden and managed three studios 50 Kilometers south of Munich. In Bad Toelz Germany.
By 1982, I was accepted into the School of Technical Art and Design at the University of Munich, Germany. After graduating, I shoot foods, cars, people-travel, and architecture. As a photo journalist, I’ve facilitated editorial work on a host of brochures.
Since 1995, I’ve moved back to the USA and developed sales seminars; taught college level photography and hosted web based events where people walk away from the event feeling like they have gained more than just the opportunity to photograph beautiful models. With the
advent of digital photography the art world changed overnight actually, so fast it began to diminish traditional photography knowledge. The results of so many picking up digital cameras and assuming that it would do all the work began to take its toll on the profession. I call it the McDonalds mentality of photography. Fast yet unwholesome. For a short time, forgotten was the tried and true formula of using composition, exposure, and lighting to equal best results while developing a beautiful image.
