Bill Webster has been with the station for a year shooting and capturing the images that are vital to conveying a story for television. He also runs live trucks to bring you news from the scene.
Bill enjoys the creativity that shooting video provides by working with different depths and shutter speeds. He takes pride in not only capturing the right moment, but the right feel. But that's just the beginning. Bill's duties also include nonlinear editing, which truly empowers a reporter and photographer in the storytelling process. It allows them to insert and delete video quickly as stories develop in fast-paced situations. It also enables them to make adjustments mid-stream if they decide the story might be told a better way. Then there's always the chance the producer will cut their time to make room for another important story. If so, they can cut out a significant segment of the story in a hurry.
But what does Bill like most about his job? "I love meeting new people and hearing about their stories and telling that story visually through my eyes," he says.
Bill is from Binghamton but lived in Tampa, Florida for ten years working in the media. His tenure there included time at the Home Shopping Network, HGTV "Builders Showcase" and Busch Gardens' audio-visual department.
Anyone who has checked out his Facebook page knows that during his downtime Bill likes to ride a mountain bike throughout the Capital Region, and he enjoys walking his German Shorthaired Pointer, Sasha, in Washington Park. You might also catch him sipping on a craft beer from Albany Pump Station.
