BPW Student Spotlight: Chris Williams

It's time for the latest BPW Student Spotlight, where we highlight a different member of our talented community to learn more about how our students turn their passion for photography into freelance work, fulfilling hobbies, or even full-time careers. This month: wedding and event photographer Chris Williams!

Chris Williams has had a long-standing love of photography since childhood, but didn’t realize it until recently.

“My mom was cleaning out her attic and came across a whole box of my photos from when I was younger,” explains the Cambridge native and UMass Boston alumna. “I didn’t even put it together, but I was always the kid on the field trip or the last day of school with a disposable camera, capturing the memories. I was ALWAYS the one with the camera ready to go!”

Salem Photo Walk!

The BPW is all about adventure and exploration. This past weekend we held a day trip photo walk in the historic city of Salem, MA. The city best known for Halloween also has charm outside of October. Our students and instructors strolled through the city and photographed the charming historic downtown capturing the seen and often unseen side of Salem. Check out our other upcoming "Special Event" classes held throughout the year and updated regularly. The BPW believes photography is the best excuse to get out and explore!
