Hello! My name is Bill Burk, a commercial and portrait photographer from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. My passion for photography was sparked at a young age using my families point and shoot film camera. Through family vacations and many rolls of film my interest in photography grew. Entering High school I elected to take a photography course. With encouragement from my instructors I continued my photographic journey throughout high school and into an arts program at a local community college. With a lack of arts funding at the school courses suffered and with less photography classes available I decided to look elsewhere for a photographic education.
Flipping through an American Photo magazine I came across a shout out to Hallmark Institute of Photography. A month later I was headed to the small town of Turners Falls Massachusetts where I embarked on an intensive 10 month photography and business program, graduating in the summer of 2006.
I started working with other photographers and eventually started my own business.
Currently I am working as a commercial photographer. My work has been seen in advertising, editorials an publications. Photography isn't all I do. I enjoy spending copious amounts of time with my lovely wife and two young sons. Also as most PNW natives I like to snowboard, hike and create landscape imagery.
Feel free to reach out and say hi!
