About BILLY HESS Photography

To produce a captivating image, I must fell the spirt, soul and emotion in that second before I press the stutter of the camera. It can be in a brief moment in live performance, on the set in a studio, or when I am covering an event.  I don’t want you to just see the image I want you to feel it. - Billy Hess

" I capture the Soul of an Image". Photographic excellence requires a strong creative eye to see the inherent greatness of a potential image ... the technical skill to capture just the right light and setting ... and the talent to manipulate every element of the process.

"When your inner self is being captured in an image by a photographer with proven skills, let yourself relax, trust and simply let it flow. That’s the most important way you can contribute to an creative excellent result.
