William Dixon has worked in digital photography for several years. Though diverse in what he photographs much of his work centers on portraiture,
architecture, and travel. Beginning with digital printing, William recently has expanded his printing skills to include alternative printing processes
that were popular from 1850 -1900. Through attending workshops, youtube, and trial-and-error he has made cyanotype, carbon, salt, photogravure,
palladium and other types of prints. William is presently working on a portfolio of kallitype prints based on his digital images of the California missions.
William has been an active participant in group shows organized by the Brattleboro Camera Club.
He has had exhibits in BCC shows at the Crowell Gallery in the Moore Free Library, Newfane [Barns of Windham County, Bridges of Windham County],
Brooks Memorial Library, Brattleboro, and Mocha Maya Coffee House in Shelburne Falls, Ma.
