About Bill Roberts
I got my first box camera at about the age of eight, when my family lived in Europe. Four decades ago, I bought my first 35-mm SLR, which I took to Israel when I went to school there, and used for several years after. My interest in photography later waned for reasons too numerous to expound on here.
During my nearly two-decade career as a newspaper and magazine editor, being a word-driven professional, I often was in conflict with photographers, although I always valued their output, and understood the power of their images. The debates were always around the relative importance and value of words versus images.
One photographer I worked with closely during my years at the Detroit Free Press won a Pulitzer Prize for feature photography. In fact, I think the newspaper won three Pulitzers for photography during the decade I was there. This had nothing to do with me, but is indicative of how much images were part of our DNA. Maybe a little of that rubbed off on me.
During my five year magazine editing career I had the opportunity to work with one of the best magazine editors in the country, and with some outstanding art directors. I am sure they imbued me with a better visual sensibility than I previously had.
In 2000, I acquired one of the early point-and-shoot digital cameras and started taking pictures with it. The rest is history, as they say. I have since graduated through three generations of technology to DSLR with full sensor, high resolution and interchangable lenses.
I got serious about digital photography a decade ago when I was living in Japan and writing a book about the Shinto religion. I needed to photograph the rituals, shrines and people of the sect I was writing about. Around 2009 I began to take landscape photography seriously.
I also enjoy shooting bird life and nature in general. Moss Landing, California, about eight miles from where I live, is a favorite locale. You don't need to travel halfway around the world to find interesting photo subjects.
You can see a lot more of my images at Shutterfly. If you ever see anything there you'd like as a print, let me know and I'll upload it to this site. Here's the link:
