Hello. My name is Bill Russell. I grew up in the south and now live in Western Washington. My youngest brother was instrumental in my initial interest in photography. Loaning me his camera and offering advice with my first camera purchase.  Over the years my photography has evolved to include my love of nature and the outdoors. With the many photo opportunities the Pacific Northwest and surrounding areas have to offer, I have tried to capture the true beauty and natural habitat in my photos. Be it bears in Alaska, elk in Yellowstone or the birds in my backyard, I feel privileged to have been witness to such sights.



All the animals in these photos were taken in the wild.
No zoo or captured animals.
