Bill Ward is a photographer and actor living in Bristol, specialising in creative landscape photography. His photography is mainly project based and he has a strong leaning towards water and enjoys creativity using abstract, ICM and multiple exposure.
Staying in the present and photographing whatever project he's working on at any given time is what sustains Bill. He is currently completing an ITN project on starling murmuration on the Somerset Levels.
This is a highly entertaining account of how he balances his acclaimed acting and photography careers. Peppered with anecdotes he explains how acting is the reason he became a photographer. Whilst thriving on the energy he gets from acting, photography allows him to re-establish to himself who he is. He needs the peace, quiet and solitude of photography to bring balance back.
It is important to him to make a connection with wherever he is and describes his work as 'unashamedly emotional'. He loves 'hanging out with' or 'plugging into' Mother Nature and finds it re-energising.
Chatting about the importance of trying things out and moving on when things don't work out he says this shouldn't be looked upon as failure. His attitude is inspiring!
Hear Bill describe how his Theatres in Danger book came about. It's a beautiful book and all the money raised goes to the Theatres Trust charity.
Don't miss this wonderful chat.
