Award-winning photographer, Bill Grant, loves to travel and photograph the beauty around him, whether it is Hawaii, Mexico, Canada or his home state of Missouri. Even though he has lived here for twenty-three years, Grant continues to be amazed by the beauty and allure of Missouri. He spent six months photographing St. Louis for this book, always hoping to capture one, single, visual image that would personify St. Louis; but, he found it impossible. As a result, St. Louis: A Photographic Portrait celebrates a kaleidoscope of images that ultimately captures this great city. Grant shot most of these photographs with his Canon 5D digital camera. His photographs have been published in various magazines, calendars and brochures.
