Photographer of the Month for March 2023


Born in Humacao, Puerto Rico but raised in the media capital of the world, a.k.a New York City, William Dones was first introduced to photography through his studies at Beach Channel High School. During his early twenties, photography became a favorite pastime of his while his career moved in the direction of computers and technology.

As digital technology became more readily available, however, his interest in photography quickly grew into a passion, and he began to work with new and different ways to see the world through the eyes of the digital camera. Using the dynamics of light and technology to refine and bring his images to life.

In the Spring of 2009, after years of taking photos and posting them online, a couple came up to him and asked if he would shoot their wedding in Puerto Rico. It was that instance that prompted the creation of his website, WJD Photos.

His growing portfolio includes photos of weddings, engagements, maternity, baby, events, landscapes, travel, professional headshots, real estate, and still-life, and he is currently serving New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.
