     Will Gibson and I met at Palomar College in San Marcos, California. Portrait Photography, Commercial Photography and his assistance through Donna Cosentino's Alternative Process class, are few of the college courses I studied under his instruction. During my studies at Palomar College the professors, students and Will GibsonWill GibsonWill Gibson's wall of art and bin box filled with full color extraordinary bin prints.  photography department was an intimately satisfying experience. We were all a very close group of creatives regardless of our level of understanding. Throughout the past seven years after graduating from Palomar College I have had the pleasure of getting to know Will as a fellow creative rather than a student teacher relationship. I've been fortunate enough to be invited to join the exclusive collaborative of photographers, Snow Creek, where Will and I are both members. I've had this unique opportunity to get to know Will as a friend and as a mentor. Because of his guidance from the start of one of my bodies of work, Awakening, I was able to find the path I needed to take with the visual element of combining images into a composite. Thank you for that Will, it's one of my favorite series and means a great deal to my evolution as a fine art photographer. 

     Will's work is of technical genus and clarity of vision and storytelling. I love that he experiments with not only creating tack sharp imagery by stacking a multitude of layers to show details that one simply can't imagine at first glance of things we see in nature. To his series of in-camera blurred photography that are more about form, texture, space, line, color, and composition. Will's work also extends beyond digital imagery into the alternative processes that at one time were the norm. From Platinum and Platinum Palladium prints of superb tonal range to his traveling van creating wet plate tintypes on the go. 

     Come view the current work's by Will Gibson at Oak Gallery, also check out Studio 3 located in Art Hatch, Escondido, California that features his work as one of the exhibiting artist.
