I've been a Bozeman, MT-based professional photographer for over 25 years. This website represents a departure from my normal work and combines two of my biggest photographic passions: Dogs and Portrait Photography.
Over the years I've taken on personal projects to learn new photographic and post-production skills and to create images that make me a more versatile photographer outside of my normal work (billbuckleyphotography.com). I love telling stories through creative photography: capturing a dog's or person's personality, then turning a good image into something uniquely personal and striking in post production.
If you're a hunting dog owner like I've been most of my life, you've probably seen my pictures in magazines like Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, Gun Dog, Shooting Sportsman, Covey Rise, and Ducks Unlimited. If you're a dog lover in general, then you might have had your Peet's Hill walk interrupted by some old guy giving your pooch a head-to-toe massage. And if you're simply somebody looking a "portrait photographer near me" to record you or your dog's personality or passions and end up with unique, creative portraits, you might have just found the best photographer for the job.
I love collaborating with my clients, coming up with fun ideas, then turning those ideas into a truly original portrait. Above all, I work hard at making the whole experience fun and relaxing.
