Welcome to Betterbill Photography. My desire is to show the world through photography what a wonderful place we all live in. I do this mostly with landscape and travel photography with some macro shots thrown in. I also want to chronicle the activities, holidays and growing up of my family. This past year I had the privilege of being a volunteer photographer for the city of Lenexa and photographed many of their events.

    Following are my photography goals for 2013 and the outcomes:

    1. Finish and publish Blurb TransAm Bicycle Book. You can find the book at:
    2. Finish photographing Kansas and publish Blurb book. This has turned into a big project - Maybe this year.
    3. Learn and develop "casual" portrait techniques. All my portraits are casual.
    4. Attend two photo workshops. Actually attended three.
    5. Visit five art/photography galleries or shows. Yes, at least that many.
    6. Projects: Black & White, Shadows, Reflections - 30 of each. Not fulfilled!
    7. Photograph Atlantic Coast lighthouses. Did not get to the Atlantic
    8. Go on at least four photo walks including a zoo. Went on photo walks, but did not visit a zoo.
    9. Spend a week photographing in Yellowstone. My Yellowstone photos can be seen in my Travel/Yellowstone folder on this site.
