William J Simpson is a professional event & assignment photographer based in Napa, California. William works on a wide variety of photography projects for editorial, commercial and local clients alike. In contrast to his professional portfolio, William’s personal photographic work focuses on social documentary and candid street photography. As an avid globetrotter, he has explored and photographed in over 25 countries on six continents around the world, and has recently been nominated for inclusion into the next World Street Photography book, which highlights the finest photos in contemporary international street photography.

My photographic style aims to capture those decisive moments that can slip within fractions of a second. No matter the subject, I strive to bring creativity and a sense of artistry to the frame, making each photograph unique and memorable. Shooting street photography for many years has sharpened my sense of timing, allowing me to anticipate and capture those serendipitous moments found in other dynamic environments such as events & documentary work.
