About Bill Breneman
Bill was born and raised primarily in the upper Ohio Valley and West Virginia, western Pennsylvania and western New York. He has lived in the Pacific Northwest for over 20 years. He has also traveled extensively throughout North America, as well as abroad to Europe, the British Isles, Australia and New Zealand.
Bill's interest in photography began in high school. While in college, he gravitated towards photojournalism, serving as a photographer for several campus publications as well as a stringer photographer for local newspapers. In 2010 he founded Bill Breneman Photography. A year later, he published his first book, "Oregon Journeys: A Photographic Safari Through the Beaver State", a nature photography book profiling the state of Oregon. It received critical acclaim, and has been sold in book stores and gift shops all over Oregon.
Leaning on his professional background in sales and marketing, he has promoted his services and products for personal and commercial use. Bill's images have been featured in television and YouTube commercials, as well as news stories, newspapers, books, websites, CD album covers, public service announcements, calendars, annuals, programs, magazines and various promotional pieces. Additionally, his images have been displayed at businesses, festivals and galleries.
While Bill offers a full suite of photography services, his primary focus is in structural photography, which includes hotel, real estate, property management, architectural and homeowner association projects. He also has experience in providing professional staging services for homes and properties.
In his spare time he enjoys traveling and day-tripping, taking walks (a.k.a. "board meetings"), writing poetry, building with Legos, cycling, cooking, camping, hiking, model rocketry, and spending time with friends and family. He lives in Bend, Oregon.
