I could not be more pleased with the photos provided by William. My group, NORFMA (Northwest Regional Floodplain Management Association) hired William to photograph our annual conference in Spokane Valley. He was easy to deal with, he was not intrusive, he interacted well with the participants, and got great shots of all the presenters and at our networking event at Arbor Crest. I am very happy we decided to use him for this and will be happy to use him again in the future. Thank you for everything you did for us.

“I contacted William for his consulting services for photography. He guided on our team on how to properly set up and configure our photography set up/ Studio . William has a vast knowledge and experience in his sector and answered every question we threw his way. Once we had the studio set up William trained our team on how to proficiently use the new camera software, which can be daunting but William made it easy. William spent 2 days with our team ensuring we learned how to use the equipment properly and to make sure the end product is what we were looking for. Will was very patient throughout the whole process ensuring we are comfortable. Not only was William fantastic on the actual consultation appointment he was also very quick to get back to me if I had any questions or concerns regarding the new set up. 10/10 would recommend to friends and collogues and we will be using him for all future photography needs.”

He has a knack for getting people comfortable behind the camera, and is willing to go above and beyond, even if that means late nights followed by early mornings! I highly recommend William for your photography needs.”

“William is an incredibly talented photographer and videographer. And more than raw talent, he works with duplicates and triplicates of the best equipment. When one isn’t getting the look he needs, there are plenty of pieces to choose from. His studio, Camera Ready Studios almost seemed like too much for our little project. You could put like 3 cars in there! The video he was able to turn out for our project was phenomenal and I received several calls that it made several of the moms cry with the emotion it evoked. For business owners, there is not one the photographer I would choose in the entire DFW area. To view our joint project, you can see it pinned to the Mom Boss Club Facebook Business Page.”

SACSCOC 2019 conference in Houston TX

“William did an amazing job with photographing our conference. My request to William was to not just take pictures of the audience members or someone speaking at a podium, but to “capture moments.” He delivered! His work will enable us to use our own photos in our publications and on our registration website to promote our event. His photos are professional and of very high quality. I look forward to the opportunity to work with William again.”

“As any events director or marketing professional specializing in events can attest, images are essential in capturing the moments that make your event special and unique. We often are pulling a name out of a hat when it comes to local photographers and many times walk away a little disappointed with the lack of strong imagery to tell our story for us. Occasionally, you may “strike gold” by finding a photographer that understands your conference and can deliver a visual story of your event — no matter what the size, venue or content. We were fortunate enough to find such a partner.

William is simply amazing. We host two annual events. One is a modest sized executive summit for which getting images has long been a challenge but he managed to deliver pictures that honed in on the unique aspects of the summit – capturing the engagement and connections beautifully.

We appreciated his work so much that we asked him to attend our much larger annual conference. He was simply amazing to work with. So accommodating, quick with helpful solutions and suggestions, easy to work with and a real pleasure all around. It’s obvious that he loves his craft and understands the role of his efforts when it comes to marketing the following year’s event. He is more than an event photographer – he is an amazing partner.

I can’t say enough about William and look forward to working with him again!”

“William Morton is a talented, professional photographer.

I had the privilege of working with William on a volunteer basis for the Nathan Fletcher for Mayor campaign. He generously donated his time and expertise at numerous events – fundraisers, press conferences, community gatherings.

William is personable, reliable and highly trained in his field. Many of his photos were breathtaking. He has a unique ability to capture just the right moment. We looked for any opportunity we could to use his photography – social media, our website, event flyers.

I would recommend William to anyone who is looking for a quality photographer. You will not be disappointed.”

“I had the opportunity to work with William for the 2010 IFX Strategic Franchise Conference. We tasked William with handling many responsibilities and he handled everything with professionalism and grace. He was asked to photograph speakers and attendees during the conferences sessions; In the evening, we held a party at the House of Blues where he hired fake “paparazzi” for red carpet entrances and set-up a green screen that simulated a live concert background for the attendees to pose in front of. William was a true professional and delivered wonderful photographs that captured the whole event incredibly. I would be thrilled to work with William again and hope to have the opportunity in the near future.” April 12, 2011

“We hired William to shoot our largest event of the year. It entailed 3 solid days of event (5000 people) shooting plus 2 days of photo shoots. He was required to cover the main stage event, cocktail parties (both inside and outside), single shots on white background for use in magazines, plus shots of the design of the event. William was a pleasure to work with. He was able to recommend and manage other photographers we needed to cover the event as well as make-up artists. William was extremely flexible when switching from event to event and was always pleasant and respectful of the people we were shooting. He takes and follows direction well but was able to add his own style once he understood what we were looking for. We would absolutely contact William again and would recommend him for your event-shooting needs.”November 13, 2010

William Morton was selected for the photographer during our company’s annual trade show meeting out of approximately twenty photographers in the San Diego area. We did a general online search, and out of that, had a phone conversation with five prospects. William came across as very professional, personable, and we received a cost estimate for our needs immediately.

Our advertising manager, whom William worked with on site, said that he fulfilled every detail we outlined in our request for services. I strongly endorse him for on site photographic work, and if our company holds a trade show event in Southern California in the future, we will be calling on William Morton’s services.” April 28, 2010
