William Manning: Tour Guide/Workshop Leader and Assignment Photographer
My home town is Cincinnati Ohio, while my studio can be found anywhere in the world. After 30 years as a professional photographer, the excitement and motivation to produce exceptional photography is still very much alive. I have worked in the crowded streets of Bangkok, the dusty plains of the Serengeti, amongst the medieval structures of Prague, in the quiet confines of a newly built skyscraper and many other beautiful and exciting locations. Working in these often challenging environments has provided me the experience and ability to handle stressful situations under tight deadlines.
Leading photography workshops is something I have enjoyed for over 25 years. I have lead photographers to many of our nation’s treasured parks, beautiful hard to find locations, and to many of our great cities. Beyond the boundaries of the U.S., I have lead dozens of photography tours to international destinations that have rewarded us with incredible photographic and cultural experiences. Regardless of location, my commitment to sharing my knowledge and expertise is paramount on every photo journey. I bring my experience as a teacher, an assignment photographer and an accomplished travel leader to every tour and workshop. If learning in a fun, creative and beautiful environment is what you’re looking for, I hope you consider joining me on one of my photo journey’s.
How My Workshop Participants Benefit
The information and the photographs my workshop participants take home with them is very important to me. This reflects on me in many ways but most importantly I want these photographers to be excited and motivated to continue working behind their camera with confidence. I bring real world experience to share with participants, working with corporate clients to produce a body of work used in marketing campaigns and other commercial applications. Much of the work I produce is incorporated into multi-million dollar campaigns, meaning team work is of the utmost importance, the ability to think and produce quality work under tight deadlines and delivering a portfolio that masterfully targets the project objective. Along with this experience I also have over 20 years experience teaching and sharing this knowledge. Should you decide to travel with me, my promise is to be available to you at all times to share and answer all your questions whether it be creative or how to run a photography business.
