|The somewhat questionable character you see to the left is Bill Reeves, freelance photographer and one time comic book junkie. Having gotten his comic book addiction under control, Bill has since earned a B.S. and an M.A. in Advertising from the University of Texas at Austin, and is currently working on his PhD. His love of advertising is only surpassed by his love of photography, which he now pursues as a profession. He does so with a simple purpose, to photograph the best and worst our world has to offer with the belief that man will strive to achieve the best and take action to correct the worst. It is his sincere desire that his photography eventually help his subjects, and hopefully the world around him.|
In 2008, Bill was accepted into two of the most prestigious workshops that a photojournalist can attend. He was accepted into the Magnum Education – Oslo Workshop in March, and attended the Eddie Adams Workshop, Barnstorm XXI, in October. Further, Bill has won multiple awards in national and international competitions. Most recently Bill’s photos were finalists in the PDN Faces competition in the Celebrity/Editorial division. Additionally, Bill’s work is currently in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Worcester Art Museum, the Harry Ransom Center, and is under consideration for purchase at a number of other museums. Finally, his work has been exhibited in Oslo, Norway and Austin, TX, and is currently part of a three person exhibition touring Japan.
Despite the appearance of the image to the left, Bill is actually quite happy, and gets along with most people. To this day he has no idea why he writes his bio in the third person.
