A Connecticut native, William Kramer has embraced art and nature since he was able to hold a pencil. This passion began during hikes with his grandfather, William Vincent Ambrose, who was also an artist and nature lover. Through him, William learned to love and respect the natural world around him. Today, William spends countless hours hiking and biking to places where he can observe and photograph local wildlife. These treks into the woods are an invaluable resource for painting inspiration as well as learning about the habits of wild animals.
This passion for photography has evolved and grown to shooting people and events. I have found great joy in capturing the ordinary and the extraordinary moments that define them. I believe that choosing a photographer is as much about the experience we will have together as it is about the enduring images that are created.
I’m not after staged snapshots. I’m looking to capture a more intangible and special element: authentic experience.
I am a wildlife photographer at heart, but photographing people is more than simply capturing the moments in front of me. Providing truly great images goes beyond technical expertise. It requires insight, intuition and the ability to connect on an emotional level. I truly believe that developing friendships with my clients is what leads to great images.
Traditionally trained in fine art, William received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and Fine Art from Keene State College. In 1998, William started his professional career as a graphic artist for Cannondale Bicycle Corporation, primarily designing graphics for bicycles. An avid cyclist, this mix of art and cycling at work was a dream.
May of 2008 was a time for major change. Looking to expand his interests of photography and print design William accepted a job as Art Director/ Photographer for NEMO Equipment in Dover, New Hampshire. NEMO is a small, high-end tent company known for its AirSupported Tents. This new career opened a lot of doors for creativity and expression in many aspect of design.
Now a current resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire William continues to shoot daily and spend as much time in the studio and outdoors as possible.
