Bill Thompson

Featured Artist through March

Photographer and fly fisherman Bill Thompson is the Featured Artist at the Freedom Public Library for January-March. Bill is sharing his presentation, The Art of Automobile Photography

Most people who know Bill, know his passion for fly-fishing. He always carry a small pocket camera with him when he fishes. There is one other passion that he has, and that is his old 1964 Ford F-100 pickup truck. He loves to photograph old cars as much as he likes driving his old truck. Most car guys are known by what they drive. You may not know their names, but you know what kind of car they have. A lot of Bill's friends know he has an old Ford truck, but they think of him as “the camera guy”.
 
Photos can be purchased from Bill, and he's available to capture images of your classic vehicle.
 
You can view Bill's photos during regular Library hours: Tues 2-7 pm, Wed 10 am - 2 pm, Thur 2-7 pm, Fri 12 - 5 pm, and Sat 10 am - 1 pm. For more information, call the Library at 603-539-5176.
