Bill Bachmann

Throughout his career Bill has inspired and enlightened literally millions of people internationally through his seminars, lectures, television talk shows, conferences, commercial assignments, radio shows, numerous magazine articles, and his own 15 published books. He has traveled on location to over 200 countries on all seven continents, worked with 5 US Presidents and photographed over 1500 magazine covers. He has completed countless assignments where he directed crews of models, assistants, art directors, clients and make-up artists to photograph major, well-known advertising campaigns. Nationally-acclaimed as a “people” shooter, his clients include many of the world’s major advertising agencies, travel companies, cruise ships, magazines, airlines, and Fortune 500 companies.

After admiring the work and drive of these talented individuals and realizing how much of his time is away from his Florida home, Bill decided to create a new company where the skills & talents of these excellent people could be showcased. And that simply is how Bachmann & Associates was born.
