For thirty years Bill Russ produced photographs for the North Carolina Division of Tourism, Film, and Sports Development.  Bill's images have been viewed by hundreds of millions of readers in domestic as well as international publications.  Working with travel editors and writers, Bill will go to great lengths to bring back the perfect photograph to illustrate the article, whether it be about a beautiful destination, wonderful North Carolina food, or one of our rich cultural treasures.


Before working for the state, Bill lived in Milan, Italy working for L'Uomo Vogue Magazine shooting fashion and lifestyle photos.  Bill was a sports and features photographer while at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for the student newspaper and yearbook.


Bill is now able to work with you and provide images for your projects, so contact him at to discuss your photography needs.
