Bill Fantini's Profile
The House of Six Cats evolution started on my 16th birthday, when I received my first SLR camera, a Minolta X700. I quickly discovered my passion for photography and that I was actually good at it! Shortly after this I graduated High School and got a job in the City at a professional photo lab. (When I say the City, I mean New York City. I was born and raised about thirty minutes north of NYC, in Westchester County New York) Once I realized that the photo lab industry was not the way to get into a real photo career, I was already mired in the lab industry.
Long story short, I spent fifteen years in the labs, and then I burnt out, and I didn’t touch a camera for a decade. During this time however, I moved cross country to San Francisco and the Bay Area, then up to Portland. Spent ten years on the West Coast and then moved back to New York with the woman that would eventually become my wife.
