Dear Billy,

Not long ago, our Editors reviewed the thousands of submissions entered in our International  Photography Contest, and they awarded your photo the distinguished Editor's Choice Award. This is an honor awarded to only 12% of the submissions we receive. Now that the first round of the judging process is complete, your photo will enter the next level of judging, becoming eligible for the $10,000 Annual Grand Prize that will be awarded in January 2008. We wish you the best of luck with this next phase of the contest.

Dear Billy,

Over the past year or so, we have been reviewing the thousands of photographs that have been submitted to us, as well as examining various pictures that have been featured by other photography publishers. After an exhaustive examination of this photographic artistry, The International Library of Photography has decided to publish a collection of new photos taken by the best photographers we have encountered.

Billy, I am pleased to tell you that you have been selected to appear in this special edition . . .
Library of Congress ISBN 0-7951-5306-6


Congratulations on your accomplishment, Billy! Only a small percentage of individuals whose photos we have examined were selected to be part of this distinguished group of outstanding photographers.

Thank you so much for those wonderful photographs. We really loved your work. Many of them are just perfect and we can't wait to enlarge them and print out. Anyone who view them online was impressed. Thank you again for providing us with wonderful memories of Hawaii and good luck with your work.

Best regards

Monika and Martin

Hi Billy,

I just want to take a moment to say that I think you're awesome.  Each time we have worked together has been a pleasure. Your ability to find the beauty in each scene shows itself in your photography and my guests always thank me for such beautiful pictures. Your professionalism, lighting style, and personable way of putting the guest at ease make you invaluable at all of my events.

You are always the first photographer I suggest for my clients, and I am truly disappointed when you are booked somewhere else because I know that my clients would have a winning event anytime you are there.

Looking forward to working with you again - and more - in the future.




Hi Billy,
We are home from Hawaii now and have had a chance to look at the pictures you took of our family.  They are just beautiful!  Thank you so very much for them.  We couldn't be happier.  However, we would like to pay you more money for your work. I do not feel that $$$ justifies the time you spent with us nor the quality of your work.  I would like to mail you a check for an additional hour ($$$).  I see that there are two addresses listed on your website, would you prefer that the check go to the PO Box or the Fort Street Mall address?  Again, we are so incredibly happy with the photos you took and will definitely pass your name to anyone we know who will be visiting Oahu!

Best Regards,



Aloha, Billy,

Rick and I would like to take this opportunity to express our
heartfelt appreciation for the excellent photographic memories you created for Edith's retirement luncheon!!!? We were very impressed with your ability to inconspicuously capture all the special moments that occurred.? It was? a very important event to mark 40+ years of service to the University of Hawaii and your CD of photos will be part of the archival history of the Dept. of Ocean& Resources Engineering.
We both give you our highest recommendation as an artistic

Best regards,

Richard & Dorothyann

Dear Billy

I donít know anybody who was not stunned by our wedding photographs that you took. I take so much pride and confidence in showing them off. They are absolutely perfect, astonishing and breath taking. I could just go on and on. It is not hard to find words to describe your work and talent. I am constantly getting comments that some pictures look like painted, which actually reflects your perfection and quality. Therefore, we want to take this opportunity to give you our deepest thanks. Now these are the words hard to find. We cannot thank you enough for granting us with such a life time memory. We truly hope to go back to Hawaii and take more photographs with you again!


Rose and Victor
