Artist’s Statement

William Bell

William Bell has been a full time photographer since 1989, specializing in making archival, museum grade prints of scenes around the Eastern United States.

Bill uses large-format 4X5 film, and high end digital cameras to capture his images.  He also does all of his own printing, using state of the art digital equipment to achieve amazing quality in his images.

His collection of photographs includes many landscape images from the Blue Ridge Mountains. “I’ve lived most of my life in these mountains, and I’m continually inspired by the unique beauty of this area,” he said. He also has a large number of pieces from the barrier islands of the Carolina coast. “One of the great places!”

Bill’s images can be seen and purchased at the the Bell Gallery & Garden,  in Floyd,VA, and at art and craft shows.

NOTE:  All of my pictures are printed with archival pigment inks on canvas, and then double lacquered with a UV coating. They are gallery wrapped;  the image goes around all sides of the piece so no frame is needed.


I make my pictures in very small numbers in my one-man shop, so I do not have a “deep” inventory of pictures at any one time.

Because of this I want my customers to know that it might take me a couple of weeks to make your particular picture.
