Bill Bailey

About Bill

Bill Bailey isn’t your average shutterbug. This photography adventurer spent part of his career traversing the Alaskan wilderness, capturing family portraiture of remote villagers and the children in outlying school districts with his company, Northern Exposure Photography of Alaska.

But the call of warmer climates lured Bill south, where he met his “Aussie sweetheart,” Kim. Together, they embarked on a new photographic odyssey: the captivating world of panoramic imagery. In 2004, Bill joined forces with Nick Fan to co-found Nodal Ninja, a company that’s become a leading name in panoramic photography. Bill’s passion wasn’t just about capturing breathtaking landscapes, he’s a huge fan of the art form itself, using his influence to promote panoramic photography and helping others to ignite creative expression, from snowy deserts to sandy beaches. After 14 years as C.E.O. of Nodal Ninja, Bill decided to retire but he’s still actively involved in photography. He offers expertise to Fanotec, ensuring their innovative tripod heads keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

Since 2013 Bill has also been very proud to be part of the Epson Pano Awards VR/ 360 Judging Panel.
