My name is Billy Butski, I was born on September 14, 1993 and I'm from Niagara Falls, New York. I am a recent graduate of the University at Buffalo with two bachelors degrees, Spanish and International Studies. Through my time in college I was able to study abroad at Universidad de Salamanca in Spain, which helped me become fluent in Spanish. My travels have also allowed me to expand on my photography. I have been taking pictures ever since I was a kid, using my dad's digital camera by taking pictures of birds and squirrels that came to the feeders we put out for them. Eventually I got my own camera and started taking pictures of anything that looked cool or interesting. My travels to Spain and Portugal have allowed me to get a lot of unique shots as compared to what one might find in the United States. My favorite things to photograph are landscapes, nature scenes of animals, and architecture. I love capturing a moment that makes someone stop and realize how awesome our world is. Being from Niagara Falls, I have many interesting shots of the natural wonder that even impresses the locals. I've entered some of my photography pieces into the Erie County Fair and the Lewiston Art Festival. So far I'm proud to say that I've come up with 4 awards. 2 first place, 1 third place, and also a forth place ribbon. My goal is to share and tell a story with my photography, also to inspire everyone to see for themselves how beautiful our world is.
