Bill Poole began making photographs with his stories when he wrote his Detours features for the San Francisco Chronicle in the 1990s–otherwise there would have been no pictures. Today, Bill often carries a camera when researching a story, and many of his pieces are illustrated, at least in part, with his photographs. Bill’s more than 40 years experience in photography have given him a solid grounding in how images and text work together in a publication. In his eight years editing Land&People magazine, he chose most of the images and wrote all the captions, understanding that they would be read much  more often than the text.
