About Bill Fortney
My name is Bill Fortney, I’m a Kentucky based photographer, committed Christian, and husband of fifty three years. I have three married adult children, and six wonderful grandchildren. Though I’ve been a professional photographer for many years, I’m happily now, a very serious amateur shooter. I now shoot and teach for the sheer joy of it. My greatest commitment is to be a worthy servant of Jesus Christ, a good husband, father, and grandfather. I also want to be a faithful friend to those that have honored me by allowing me to be their friend.
This website is a place anyone can come for spiritual inspiration, photographic instruction, and fellowship. My only goal is to honor my Heavenly Father and share his love, compassion, forgiveness, and grace with others. You are welcome and invited to visit here often!
For 11 years I was a Nikon Professional Services Tech Rep covering the Southern United States and serving also as a liaison person for the nature market. I work with an incredibly talented group of professionals to cover various events and shows across America. I’ve been blessed to work at Shuttle launches, Air Races, Air Shows, The Masters, PGA Championships, NASCAR races, The Kentucky Derby and the Breeder’s Cup. I’ve worked with NFL teams, college sports programs, universities, colleges, major newspapers, and magazines, law enforcement and many pros that use our equipment. Since retiring from Nikon in 2013 I have become an avid user an promoter of the Fujifilm X-System. I was named an X-Photographer by Fujifilm Global a few years ago and now do workshops around america with Jack Graham Photo Workshops many for Fujifilm users. I also run my own workshop comapony His Light Workshops and Christian based photo workshop, aimed at that market.
