About Me

Photographer, Educator, and Counselor.

You can call me Billy. I am a photographer.  I also teach psychology at Full Sail University, and I am a licensed mental health counselor.  I believe everyone has a story to tell, and a desire to connect.  William Barnett Photography is about families, and helping people tell their stories.

Photography is the coolest thing!  Through photography, we capture the fleeting moments in our lives in order to hold on to them forever.  I was always fascinated with family photo albums as a kid.  The images were a window into my own past, and what was going on around me.  It taught me that there is a visual story that confirms our desire to love and be loved.  The images of family and loved ones always reminded me of the value of our personal stories, our memories and our connections.  This is what led me into photography, and later into becoming a counselor.  For me, photography is therapy.

I believe professional photography is about knowing how to build relationships and tell stories.

I want my work to highlight families, and to reveal the importance that we all place on relationships, connections and memories.  This is the philosophy in all of the work I do as an educator, a counselor and as a photographer.
