DeWayne A. Williams Jr., Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in photography.
Passionate about both art and environmental science for as long as he can remember, Mr. Williams has dedicated his career to a combination of the two. He has worked in a variety of positions, including aquatic biologist for the Oregon Game Commission, a regulator at the Environmental Protection Agency where he enforced the Clean Water Act, a biological technician for the National Marine Fisheries Service, arts and crafts director and instructor for the U.S. Army in the Canal Zone, an artist and museum curator for the University of Montana, and an exhibition specialist for the National Park Service. Since 2002, he has dedicated himself to art. His specialty is black and white fine art photography using an 8×10 view camera.
One of the highlights of Mr. Williams’ career was creating Montana Tribute, a book released for Montana’s official centennial in 1989, as the author, editor, photographer, and publisher. The limited-edition book sold all 6,500 copies made and is made entirely of photographs made from 8×10 negatives. Mr. Williams drove 25,000 miles that centennial year and captured images of unique people, places, and things in Montana.
Mr. Williams earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences from Florida State University in 1966 and a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from Oregon State University in 1974. He also completed coursework at the University of Idaho in range management from 1997 to 1999. When Mr. Williams has spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, and camping.
