"The Most Intriguing Women Of The Last 50 Years"

Bill has begun working on this exiciting new book. In the next 18-24 months he will be working with publicist Terre Arrigoni to create images of many of the most exciting, interesting, beautiful and intriguing women on our planet!

This book will be an exhausting project as Bill travels to photograph high-profile women in their environment. A sampling of the women that will be invited to appear in this important project are Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton, Laura Bush, Halle Berry, Cher, Sarah Palin, Julia Roberts, Madonna, Sophia Loren, Jennifer O'Neill, Reese Witherspoon, Susan Lucci, Jodi Foster, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Walters, Venus Williams, etc., etc. ...

A project of this size & scope requires much planning and organization. We will work with the stars' agents and public relations people to travel and photograph with the fewest amount of problems. It is quite an honor to be selected for a coffee-table book celebrating inclusion as the MOST INTRIGUING woman of an entire 50 years!

Bill has traveled to over 170 countries on all seven continents. He has shot over 1200 magazine covers, but he is more excited documenting these honored ladies for this special book. Look for this book to appear soon and celebrate with us this prestigious collection of important women on our planet Earth.

JENNIFER O'NEILL ---- Any boy over ten years old in the 70's remembers her in the classic movie "Summer of 42." We all fell in love!

I traveled to Nashville to shoot this photo of Jennifer. She even cooked me a great pasta dinner... how good is that! The photo on the left will be in the book. Taken on her porch, she looks as beautiful as that classic movie. That same soft look.

SUSAN LUCCI---- America's most beloved soap-opera star! I shot the photo on the right in New York City on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was a very cold day and she was still terrific.

Susan has her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, won an Emmy for "All My Children", starred on Broadway, and was named by VH-1 as one of the "200 Top Icons of all Time". A truly great woman in our world!

"Send Me Anywhere" is one of Bill's three newest books. You have never witnessed a book with more vibrant color!

This book is a smorgasbord of color for your senses. As Bill travels the world, he looks everywhere for graphic color to illustrate the beauty of our planet. This collection of almost eighty exciting images will take you on a trip around our Earth that you won't believe.

All of Bill's other books have stories and writing about the many photographs. He wanted to make this book totally different. He succeeded in allowing just the brilliant colors to speak to the reader without words or interpretation.

Bill has traveled to over 170 countries on all seven continents. In "Send Me Anywhere" he has selected the best of the best! You will discover images from the top of the world (above the Arctic Circle) to the bottom (below the Antarctic Circle.) Bill has even documented colorful tribes in many remote parts of the world and in this book he brings them alive.

Bill highly recommends this new book for anyone who loves photography. It is also a great, inexpensive gift to those who love to travel.

 


"Images of Woman"
is also one of Bill's three newest books.

If you look at the nude slideshow on the website, you will see a few samples of the great B&W images Bill has created for this new book.

Returning to his love of B&W photography was a joy for Bill. He travels around the world for a prestigious array of advertising agencies and magazines, shooting color advertising images. In this book, however, Bill turns inward and shows his own personal fine-art nude ideas in black & white.

Many of the models in "Images of Woman" are highly paid models in the magazine world. Here they posed for Bill, and his creative ideas, to capture something unusual, sensual and intriguing.

This book took several years to develop. Bill often took time from his busy commercial work to create fine-arts images to share with the world.

"Images of Woman" is a chance to look into the mind of a top commercial photographer creating his own personal vision -- without the paid assignments, big crews, and all the glamour involved in large advertising projects. This book should stimulate your visions and appreciation of art in a pure artistic form.

"Clicking The Shutter Is The Easy Part" is a must read for anyone interested in what REALLY happens in the advertising photography business. Author Bill Bachmann takes the reader behind the scenes on actual assignments as part of the photo team, illustrating the humorous events on locations all over the world. His wit and enthusiasm keep the audience interested as he documents -- with pictures and writing -- the production set-ups, how to work with beautiful models, and favorite places in the world to shoot. There are several chapters that show day-by-day shot lists and set-ups, with all the crazy changes to which a photographer must adapt. Any assistant who wants to work in the business should read this book!

This was Bill's first book and is still a great help to photographers, models, assistants and other crew hopefuls to get (and KEEP) interesting and lucrative assignments. One whole chapter tells what it is like to shoot famous celebrities like Bill Cosby, Donna Rice, Charlton Heston, Muhammad Ali, Burt Reynolds, and many others. The reader goes behind the scenes to find out what so many famous people are really like in their life. You'll travel to many exotic parts of the world and experience first-hand the "secrets of the trade." There are over 160 photographs, many behind the scenes, that illustrate commercial assignments from magazines.

Even though this was a early book written by Bill, it is still very informative and helpful today to anyone interested in the advertising business.

 
"Orlando: The City Beautiful" is a book that Bill proudly produced in collaboration with former Orlando Mayor Glenda Hood.

This coffee-table book is a wonderful example of living in Orlando today. Bill has traveled the world, but still enjoys returning to Orlando - his adopted hometown.

"Orlando: The City Beautiful" is a large colorful story of people and places in the Central Florida area. Most books about Orlando talk about the theme parks... this book shows beautifully what it is like to really LIVE in Orlando. You will meet many characters that live in the area and give Central Florida it's personality. Bachmann and Mayor Hood really illustrated the city as a fun and vibrant Southern community.

Whether or not you call Orlando home, you will enjoy this escapade around the best city in Florida.
