Bill Balcer has a passion to capture special moments then turn them into lifelong images. His first camera, at the age of 9, was a Kodak Instamatic 104. Later he learned from his Father how to develop 35mm film in a darkroom. Bill is also a current student at the Creative Photo Academy. He truly enjoys working with people to grow their knowledge of photography. This includes managing natural and artificial (flash) light within each picture. Bill leads some of the Photo Walks and Night Hawk meet-ups through the Creative Photo Academy as well.
