Bill Apton - Photography

Studio Discovery Tour artist Bill Apton: moth I was enamored with the magic of photography at age 10 when I received my first camera as a gift from a local bank for opening a savings account with $10. My fascination with cameras and photography continued to expand throughout my younger years. When college beckoned, I attended Rochester Institute of Technology where I majored in photography and received a B.S. Degree.

Studio Discovery Tour artist Bill Apton Following a tour of duty in the army, I traveled to the west coast and discovered the magnificence of the Bay Area. I moved to San Francisco and opened my freelance photography business, specializing in photographing people and products on location and in the studio for a myriad of annual reports, advertising, fashion and editorial clients.

Studio Discovery Tour artist Bill Apton: Turkey I'm proud to be in the private collection of Ansel Adams, now at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, Tucson. As a member of Superstock, a world wide photo agency, my images have been used in a variety of advertising venues.

As a frequent traveler, I'm always looking for the beauty in every locale and have been continually producing art photos for 40 years.
