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.
