Welcome to my About Me page, I’m Will Swinnea, a professional freelance landscape photographer in which my work is focused on that of my hometown of Austin Texas with other landscape images consisting that of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
Growing up, I was active in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, for which I earned the rank of Eagle.
In those days, we did a lot of hiking and camping in remote landscapes like Big Bend National Park, Weminuche Wilderness of Colorado, and the Mountains around Monterrey Mexico.
Being surrounded by those environments at a early age, is why landscapes would ultimately become my photography niche.
My journey with photography started back in my high school and middle school days, however, It wasn't until my early twenties that I picked up photography again, this time a Nikon D80 DSLR camera.
At the end of the day, my goal and purpose of my landscape images, is to help shatter the stereotype that some people out there may have about Texas.This is something that I myself have grown to appreciate and evaluate more throughout my own travels as a photographer.
Once again, thank you for visiting my site. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have one!
