About the Photographer

  Bill Petros is a well-respected Washington, DC freelance photojournalist and commercial photographer with over thirty years in the business of creating impactful images for his clients.  At the age of eight he received his first camera, a Kodak Brownie Bullet, from a local financial institution as a gift for opening a passbook savings account.  A hobby evolved into a passion for photographing people, places, and events.  

Upon graduating from American University with a degree in political science, Bill worked for several years as a newsfilm photographer at WJLA TV-7.  Shortly thereafter he went into business for himself, establishing a reputation as a friendly, effective, and successful professional photographer.  He counts among his many clients  universities and law schools, associations, non-profits, public relations firms, and news gathering organizations.  Bill and his wife, Jan, look forward to their trips to Greece each year where they capture  breathtaking images of his ancestral homeland.
