William Powell’s hauntingly good Halloween photos!

So many of us Bears love horror, which is why it’s no surprise that many of us love Halloween! One of those Bears is also a great photographer by the name of William Powell!.

We first spoke to Will early last year when we covered his “Abandoned America” project, which captures the dark beauty of abandoned buildings. Now, he is giving us another example of his unique photography with some of favorite, most haunting Halloween photos! 

“Halloween has always been a favorite holiday of mine, one that inspires me all throughout the year”, says William. “I grew up being obsessed with horror movies. Usually I’ll be shooting at an abandoned location and think, wow if this was a horror movie… how would it play out in this location?”

He adds: “I come back with a friend and recreate what I imagined in my head, well… try to. Sometimes I’ll think of something, shoot it and hate every bit of it. I guess that’s just all part of the creative process, or maybe that’s just me being my worst critic. Most of these have been shot in an abandoned location. I’ve had a creative block for the last month or so but with it about to be Halloween, I’ve been super inspired again. My friend and I are about to shoot something this week to release on Halloween. I’m looking forward to it because in my head, it looks really really dope!” 

Well, take a look at some of the awesome, spooky photos he has taken so far, and get ready to see more very soon from this talented photographer!
