Picture perfect

Youth photographer's work draws admirers

(Continued)

Although Capolupo originally wanted the print for Seaglass, he admits for the past few weeks he’s kept in on the walls at his SPS office to enjoy.

‘I think William’s work is wonderful; he’s one of the finest young talents I’ve ever come across,” Capolupo said. “He has the patience and technical skills to take amazing pictures.”

William took the diving gull picture at Seabrook Harbor.

“There were a million gulls on the beach that day,” he said. “This gull just kept diving and I kept snapping. When I looked at this shot, I said: ‘That’s it, I’m done.’ “

For those starting out, young or not so young, William said wonderful subjects in nature are close at hand.

“My advice to someone getting started is to go out in your back yard and take pictures of the birds and the flowers,” William said. “There’s a lot there. That’s how I started.”

Drawn to photography because he believes it will be an asset for a position as a fish and game warden, which he hopes to become one day, right now William’s favorite subject is wildlife. He admits patience can be a valuable attribute in taking the perfect shot of animals.

But soon, he’ll have to be patient when shooting a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

“Can you believe it?” Mary Dow said. “He’s been hired to shoot a wedding in May.”
