Congratulations to THE 2016
Thank you for all your support! Team 2016 has raised $150,490 for AIDS Emergency Fund (AEF) & Positive Resource Center.
The BCC was fortunate to encounter Tim in 1990 at the contests held at the original Eagle. He began to photograph the BCC men from 1991 through 2005. He shot images for the calendar in '95, '96, '97, '99, and returned for the 2014 30th Edition. His collection of contest and event images from the early years of the calendar is unparalleled. He is known to many around the calendar and throughout the leather community as the Wizard, for his unfailing commitment and attention to detail. To this day he can be seen at many BCC events capturing the men at their finest moments.
If you have been to any gay event or street fair in the last 30 years, or a BCC event in the last 20 years odds are you've seen Bill and his ever present camera. He has probably asked to take your picture, and then come back months or years later with prints for you. He as also had photos in the BAR, Bay Time, and more. He shot images for the calendar in '96, '97, '99, and returned for the 2014 30th Edition. After several hundreds of thousands of images taken, he was dubbed "Saint Snaps of the Seductive Shutter" by the Sister of Perpetual indulgence. Visit Bill on Facebook!
