PERSONAL CONNECTION - QUALITY - REPUTATION
It was during Bill's early retail years he met his soulmate, future wife and lifelong business partner. While covering a 90's Blues Fest in Ottawa, Canada ,Bill persuaded Lin to photograph the event as well. Her first assignment was young blues phenom Jonny Lang. Lin's adrenaline ran so strong in the photo pit; she was hooked, so began a long time partnership between 2 people who couldn't shoot enough film or capture enough images. A well earned reputation of quality concert photography captured by Bill & Lin's new formed business Stage Door Images brought additional interest.
