Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, William has lived in four of Canada's major cities and now calls Toronto home. Always working in design or fashion retail, the visual aspect of the work was always the draw. Buying his first camera at age 11, he remembers it being a Minolta from a local strip mall. Taking pictures was a hobby from that day on.
In the mid 2000's in Vancouver, William decided to try his hand at film, purchased a digital camcorder and joined Vancouver Film school. He completed the film direction course but realized that he was capturing stills with the camcorder more than shooting video. Film didn't stick.
"I've always been drawn to capturing inanimate objects with clean lines or a simple subject. The beauty of rustic decay or the simplicity of calculated geometry of modern architecture has always pleased my eye. I enjoy playing with perception to challenge the viewer, giving a different perspective that may otherwise not be noticed".
Williams prints are sold by order.
