Will Westerfield

Will Westerfield, photographer, computer programmer, and writer was first taught to make photographs by his father and mother, an engineer and an accountant respectively. 
 
His primary inspiring photographer is Ansel Adams who famously said “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
