Commercial Photographer William Cowger's wedding photography for capturing the romance, love and fun of the day.


In 1999, after 30+ years in the computer industry, Mr. Cowger decided he really wanted to be an international travel and wildlife photographer when he grows up.  Since then, his passion for the art of photography, love of Africa, and the thrill of the bush has become his reality (although some would argue that growing up has yet to happen).   


In his words, "Nothing gives me more pleasure than introducing people to the amazing wildlife, beautiful scenery and wonderfully welcoming people of Tanzania.  I truly am blessed to be living my life's dream".  Mr. Cowger has organized more than 20 photo safaris & workshops to the wonders of the Serengeti ecosystem. 


While Mr. Cowger has traveled to 56 countries with many more on his bucket list, the only place that keeps drawing him back is Africa.  "I will never tire of observing each of my guests experiencing their own personal wildlife special on each trip. It is a life changing experience for most, and at least the trip of a lifetime for all."  Comprehending that in this modern age of dwindling resources, there are more than 2 million large mammals roaming free in an ecosystem around which there are no fences is mind boggling for most people. 


In between trips, Mr. Cowger is a commercial photographer providing advertising images of People, Places, Products & Plates.



While all the travel provides wonderful photographic opportunities, the greatest benefit of being a photographer is looking for and finding beauty in our everyday surroundings.  It’s so easy to miss, and yet so easy to find. Look for it !


Mr. Cowger is a member of the Professional Photographers of America  and is a Director on the Board of the Troy Chamber of Commerce in Michigan, and member of the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce in Michigan.
