Bill Gallery is a fly on the wall corporate photographer. He shoots photo essays and working portraits for annual reports, branding books and special projects for clients like Apple Computer, Morgan Stanley and Herman Miller. Using a documentary approach he does not pose or produce pictures, he takes them from real life as they are found,unobtrusively without lighting or crew. This approach has proven itself with clients who want to credibly illustrate their people, products and customers without bringing the workplace to a standstill. It is also useful when there is a lot of ground to cover, whether it be all under one roof or around the world. Bill works alone, is a quick read, versatile, has a strong sense of composition, is self art directed and shoots for the full frame. His work has appeared in all the important creative journals and is widely recognized in the field of corporate photography. Clients include Apple Computer, Mastercard, Fidelity, PBS, JPMorgan Chase, Coca Cola, IBM, Merrill Lynch, Accenture, Time Warner, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Netscape, Herman Miller, Morgan Stanley, Clorox, Gulfstream Aerospace, GE, International Paper, Burlington Industries, Boston Scientific, Idealab, NY Presbyterian Hospital, Mass General Hospital, Farm Aid, KLM Airlines, Comcast, Duke Energy, McKinsey, Cognos, Thomson Reuters, Harvard University, Washington Post and many others.
