About The Photographer
William K. Daby was born in Fall River, Massachusetts and graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth with an art degree. While serving as an Army photographer, Bill was stationed in Texas and Germany between 1960 and 1963. He credits his experience to his feeling for street, architectural, and landscape photography. It all served him well in more than 35 years as a photojournalist with newspapers in the Midwest and Rhode Island's Providence Journal. Bill has been a recipient of many awards for excellence in photojournalism.
During his long and successful career, Bill has taken pictures in over 30 countries. He has been in many unique situations to "Get The Shot", including climbing a 150 foot steel ladder to the top of Iowa's second highest silo in order to photograph construction of the state's highest silo. He scaled pyramids in Egypt, went aloft in the Goodyear blimp, and flew with the Snowbirds, Canada's Air Force precision flying team.
Bill continues photographing whatever interests him. At the moment, it is "photo painting". Bill feels that after forty years of taking pictures, he is ready to make pictures. With the help of technology and his art school training, he is taking the photograph to the next level.
Bill lives with his family in Rhode Island and continues to roam the world in search of his next photo.
