What's up! My name is William Fenwick, and I'm a 23-year-old self-taught professional artist from Louisville, Kentucky. My passion for photography and cinematography began at the age of 11. I was an avid skateboarder; every day after school I'd skate miles to the local park with a handycam and tripod or go home and soak up an unhealthy amount of YouTube edits from cinematographers across the globe. As years passed, sponsors accumulated but so did hospital bills, which pushed me to focus on my passion for art. 
          By the age of 17, I was the lead photojournalist for my high school, my work was exhibited in notable competitions and magazines across the United States, and freelance opportunities began to accumulate before I even graduated. I honestly didn’t take my work too seriously until the age of 18 when I was hired to work alongside Too Short and Snoop Dogg at Rupp Arena. Not only did this opportunity help me discover what I wanted to do with my life but working in the music industry spoke to me in a way no other concentration had before. Pursuing this path has led me to numerous opportunities like working with some of my favorite artists such as Portugal. The Man and with the one and only Ryman Auditorium. Although my work in the music industry is what I’m known for, I enjoy experimenting with portraiture, lifestyle work, and backpacking to find the best landscape compositions.
          I published my first book Get Busy Livin' documenting a personal three-month backpacking trip in January 2022, I temporarily moved to Washington state to work as a park ranger, and I have also been interviewed about my experience with risk, which you can read here.
