Today we’d like to introduce you to Brian William.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Brian. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Ever since I was little, I always had a desire to capture moments through a camera. I saw the beauty in everything from buildings to bridges to beaches. The norm amongst all my friends was to play sports, which I truly enjoyed but still there was something missing. When I was in high school, I finally set my mind to do what I really loved and saved up enough money to buy the camera that I wanted. Teaching myself everything about photography through YouTube, I got better and better every day. Now, I bring my camera everywhere, capturing moments that I will remember for the rest of my life.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have been many obstacles that I’ve come across throughout my career. First was saving up for a professional Canon camera. It was hard to initially get into the business because you have to have a good camera with high resolution which I didn’t have at the time. I worked my butt off all summer Lifeguarding to final saved up enough to buy the camera I wanted. Another struggle I’ve faced is to get my work seen by others and discovered which was really difficult because I didn’t know where to start. Eventually, I built up my connections to land a couple of paid work which made me feel so accomplished because others finally appreciated artwork as well.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Brian William Co. – what should we know?
I am a self-taught photographer based in San Diego whose work is primarily based on landscape, travel, and portraits.
I am empowered by the very idea of being able to create a piece of content that can eventually bring the deepest of emotions such as joy and wanderlust to people around me, and even individuals across the world whom I’ve never met before. I continue to strive to create thought-provoking compositions with much success.
I have experience in capturing the very essence of a geological location, from the finest seascapes in Southern California to towering skyscrapers of bustling local and international cities to the peaks of various mountain ranges around the world.
Through hard work and sacrifice, I intend on creating many more masterpieces, and more importantly, I hope to share them with the world.
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I feel that being outgoing and a perfectionist has contributed to my success the most.
