In my studio it’s kind of a dance.
From the moment someone walks in, I’m trying to figure out what they’re thinking, what they’re feeling, what they’re interested in, trying to find something we both have in common.
— Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, from William Sawalich's Digital Photo Pro profile

William Sawalich has been writing about photography since 1998. He has published hundreds of reviews, technical articles and interviews in magazines such as The British Journal of Photography, Digital Photo Pro, Outdoor Photographer, Petersen’s Photographic and PC Photo. The following is a small selection of his interviews with world-class photographers.

I think it’s important not to draw attention to one’s technique and let the picture speak for itself. Let the viewer get absorbed in the emotion, or the story that you’re trying to tell.
— Steve McCurry, from William Sawalich's Outdoor Photographer profile

A creative writer and amateur filmmaker, Sawalich co-created the short films “A. Anonymous” and “Roy.” His short stories have been published in “McSweeney’s” and “Yankee Pot Roast,” and he co-wrote the cult classic web series “Inside the Actor’s Studio Apartment.” Sawalich spent a full year buying only American-made products and writing about it on his “Bye, American” blog. He also writes recurring columns for Digital Photo and AlphaUniverse on photographic technique and the business of professional photography.
