ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Scott Williams
Growing up in a small town America in upstate New York produces a strong urge to leave and explore the world, which is something that I have been doing ever since. Graduating from UTA with a business degree showed me that I wasn’t cutout for the usual road that most people travel. So I went in search of a career that fit my personality and lifestyle, photography. Where it went from being a student at Richland college in Dallas and manifested itself into becoming the instructor. My wife and I now teach photography and painting workshops via our Art Treks company. Some of our destinations have included: Tuscany, Paris, Cinque Terre, Provence, Santa Fe, Greece, Spain, New Orleans and Lake Como, along with numerous other exciting future locations.
Since starting on my chosen path, I have traveled around the glove visiting 24 countries along the way. I use the camera to explore the world around me and to capture a moment in time that has some significance for me.
So many times photographers talk about the quality of light, the presentation of a vision or some other spiritual interpretation surrounding their photography and reason for doing it. Which can all be legitimate and profound, however for me it is much simpler, I have no choice, it is a labor of love.
