About Me

I travel a lot and like to do photoshoots when on the road!

Other trips will be planned so if you are interested in working with me let me know we may be able to work something out. Or if you are in Colorado! I am trying to work out trips to California, Utah, and Washington D.C. I usually drive (not always) so that can add a lot of other states to the list.

If you live in any of the above areas and would like to shoot let's see if we can set something up? If you are along the path from Colorado Springs to the stated destinations let me know and we may be able to do a shoot? If you live someplace else and would like to do a shoot let me know and I will add you to my travel list.

I am always looking for models to photograph and unique formations, Indian artifacts, rock art, wildlife, etc...

I won "Male Nude Artwork of the Year 2011" from The Colorado Naked Man Festival with artists from all over the nation! Check it out - Fort Knox in the profile!

If you are interested in modeling for me or know of someone that is please contact me!

All models must be at least 18 years old with a state-issued photo id!

Check out my website and go to my blog and let me know what you think about my collaboration project with Ron English?

Bill Young was born and raised in Colorado Springs, CO. Bill has had a number of cameras over time and when he was 10 years old his neighbor gave him his first 35mm camera for his birthday. This was the birth of a new interest. The camera only lasted a few months but, led to the ownership of other cameras in the years to follow. Bill won an award for his photography while in grade school and then didn't enter any competitions until he was an adult and joined the "Pikes Peak Camera Club" at the urging of his friend and fellow photographer Ethel Major. The only formal training in photography that Bill received was an introductory course at Pikes Peak Community College.

In 1991 Bill picked up his first digital camera. It was a Logitech Fotoman black and white camera. This was a fun camera but, fell well short of the images expected from a digital camera. In September 2000 Bill picked up his first Nikon Coolpix 990. This was a wonderful 3.3-megapixel camera. All of the images in the banner were taken with Nikon 990s. In November of 2000, Bill convinced his friend Mark Kirkland to start "Peak Digital Imaging Society." The two of them held a number of meetings to talk about what the club would be all about and then in January of 2001 they invited people to be members of the club. In January of 2005, the club had over 100 members on the website membership list. Bill now has three of the Nikon 990 cameras. He uses two of them for stereographic images and is planning to convert the third into an infrared capture device. Bill also has a Nikon D2h. This is his current workhorse. He also Uses a Canon Power Shot A95 as a camera to carry around with him everywhere he goes as Jay Maisel suggested to him.
