I first found Bill Crofton as I was looking for someone to take my senior pictures. He personalized the entire experience by spending a few moments talking to me and figuring out exactly what I was looking for. With the information I gave him, he was able to find the perfect location to take pictures. The combination of his creativity and artistry made for some absolutely beautiful and unique shots. I was so pleased with what he did for my senior portraits that I hired him again a few years later to photograph my wedding. Bill again impressed me with the amount of care he took to find the perfect locations at our venue. Throughout the entire shoot, Bill created a relaxed and fun environment, making what can be a long and somewhat painful process a much more enjoyable experience. He also took some amazing candid photographs during the ceremony and reception that will bring memories and joy to us for years to come. I am so grateful to have found a skilled photographer to help preserve such momentous occasions in my life. Bill Crofton is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend him!

Bill took a selection of headshots for my professional profile, and I was extremely pleased with his work. Sitting for a photograph has always been a little unsettling to me. But Bill's patient, low-key, light-hearted manner put me at ease. There was no rush at all, and he worked with me at some length until I was satisfied with the results. I highly recommend Bill. He's a pleasure to work with, and his extensive experience was evident even during this rather straightforward job.

Bill was hired to take pictures of our newly rebuilt beach cottage. We used the pictures to advertise our condo for weekly rentals on VRBO. He was a master at setting up the room for the perfect picture. His attention to all the details of each space was evident in the final product. In several of the pictures he did panoramos to help the viewer get a full representation of the space. His artistic flare created the eye catching we needed to rent our condo. We have had incredible results from his photographs! Our summers have been completely booked at least a year in advance. Bill is very conscientious and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him for any photographic project that you need!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am willing to work with many different budgets depending on what the job requirements and expectations may be.

    If it is a commercial shoot, I will come and scout the location and go over details of the photo shoot with the customer before starting the job. If it is a portrait shoot, I will discuss clothing, locations, props, backgrounds, and what the customer wants to convey in their photographs.

    I have a BFA in photography from the Art Institute of Chicago, and an AA in photography from the Art Institute of Atlanta. I studied in a master class with Ansel Adams and also with Richard Avedon. I been active in photography for my entire career and since grade school.
