ABOUT


I started doing amateur photography in the mid-1990's with a passion for Landscape and Nature imagery, but I grew up watching my father work as a commercial photographer with his own darkroom, processing black-and-white and color portraits for many Texas Legislators from the Capitol, including a few Governors. So really, I've been exposed(punny!) to photography almost my whole life.

Since 2008, I've been improving on my photography passion as a professional, leveraging my computer industry skills in the digital darkroom. I will say I enjoyed watching my father work with traditional processes, but the digital darkroom has allowed my skills to progress and improve by leaps and bounds without the hazards involved with darkroom chemical exposure.

My photographic vision has been influenced by many people, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Galen Rowell, Vincent Versace, and Ansel Adams, and am now working primarily on Architectural, Landscape, and other opportunity subjects at this time. I believe this is a good marriage of my high-quality, detailed Landscape imagery experience, simply applied to a different form of Landscape—buildings and other structures.

Please let me know if you have questions or comments and I certainly thank you for viewing my work! Please sign up for my newsletter if you'd like to receive email updates about any new work produced. Also, please send me email for any questions you may have.

Thank you!
-Charles

The current entry listing for the collection is as follows:

Bill Malone Collection, AR.2015.031

Bill Malone was a photographer for the [Texas] State Legislature as well as the Chancellor's Office of the University of Texas. His photographic negatives cover the late 1950's through the early 1990's. Images are primarily scenes at the Capitol, politicians, and people in the news. Much of his work from the 1970's was lost in the Memorial Day Flood of 1981.
