Capturing the natural world in images is a passion that has driven Bill Campbell to photograph since he was very young. Believing that images can inspire others to understand and respect the fragile nature of our world, his mission has been to weave together elements of the beauty of our planet to represent the splendor of our temporary home. Bill feels that the ability to see, capture and share this majesty of life is a gift and hopes to continue using this gift to open eyes and hearts to the beauty that surrounds us until his dying days.
As a nationally recognized and award winning nature photographer, Bill’s credits include magazines such as Outdoor Photographer, Birders World, Backpacker, PCPhoto and various others. Clients include the National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife, Defenders of Wildlife and Nikon. He was the Second Grand Prize winner in the Digital Division of the Valley Land Fund Photo Competition in 2004. His images have graced several solo and combined exhibits including the largest natural history museum in the Southeast, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
