    I am troubled to read this news.
    William was a talented and very supportive photographers with his peers.
    I never personally met him but we have exchanged emails occasionally.
    The idea of deleting his email address from my address book saddens me.

    He will be missed, for those who have not seen much of his there was also an article in VC in the last year or so (sorry not at home and do not recall the issue). The article was very good, and there is a Great photograph of him with his 8x20 camera on it's side.

    Sorry, Steve we were posting at the same time it seems.

    I'm always impressed when someone with one camera, one lens and one film can make photographs far better than I could ever hope to make with fifteen cameras, eighty lenses and several different films.

    So young too.

    Meaning no offense to my colleagues here, Corey was the person who made me think that there was something to ULF beyond the usual reasons for bigger, faster, etc. (Not that I am immune to those same temptations.)
