"Bill Banaszewski has quite possibly the most extensive collection of Finger Lakes photographs assembled. His photos cover subjects from Women’s Rights sculpture to aquatic life poking their heads through the duckweed. Bill enjoys nature and all it encompasses. Animals from hawks and owls to bears and whitetail deer make up a good portion of his portfolio. If you’re looking for that perfect seasonal shot for a magazine cover, look no further, because Bill has what you need."

Mark Stash, Editor Life in the Finger Lakes Magazine

"Bill's work serves our diverse photo needs well and he's a pleasure to work with. We've used his photography to fulfill our photo needs from travel to rural life imagery."

Trudi Bellin, Photo Coordinator Reiman Publications

"Simply stated, Bill does outstanding work. His subjects range widely, from full-frame portraits of wildlife, to mood-evoking images of people recreating outdoors, to beautiful scenic's suitable for our covers. One need only flip through our pages to see how important he is to the Conservationist magazine. Additionally, Bill is a pleasure to deal with. Give him a call; you'll be glad you did."
