My name is Billy Stock, and was born in Tonyrefail, Rhondda Cynon Taff, South Wales. As a teenager, I always carried my compact camera, and loved capturing the memories of family and friends, plus the great welsh landscape. I'm also a musician who plays keyboards, and showed a selection of my photographs to my friend Don, a professional photographer and fellow musician. He was impressed, and offered me a loan of his Canon SLR Camera. This opened up a new and exciting way of taking photographs. " I was hooked " and so within a week, I had purchased my very own Canon SLR Camera.
In the early years, I won a few Photograph Competitions using film and slides. You had to get the finished image in camera, as there was no Photoshop to help you afterwards. I apply the same principles when shooting digital Images, thus spending less time on correcting or enhancing the image. And that is how it all started for me !!
Since February 2015, I have been approved by the Welsh Assembly Government, for Photography Commissions though Visit Wales.
Trading as a Professional Photographer since 1990, and acquiring a wide range of photographic experience on, Wedding Photography, Portrait Photography, Landscape Photography, Commercial Photography and Architecture Photography.
I have a number of Stock Photo Agencies that sell my images Worldwide, to Magazines, Brochures, Books, Calendars, Billboards, etc. . . . .
Past Clients are - Welsh Tourist Board, Visit Wales, Cadw, Welsh Government, Fuji Film, Formatt Filters Ltd, Royal Mail, Principality Building Society, Carter Lauren Construction, Spar, Tempest School Photography, and Design Agencies
