Hi, My name is Ian Wills
I’m a Pilottechtographer.
Aviation, Technology, Photography.
I’ve been fortunate through my years thus far to have been exposed to a considerable diversity of people, places, and ideas. I initially spent my youth in a remote community on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, came of age in the Fraser Valley, and now spend the early years of my adulthood travelling around Central and Western Canada as a junior helicopter pilot.
My experience as an independent technology consultant afforded me the means to become a helicopter pilot in 2011, and since then I have been documenting my experiences through the visual medium of still and time-lapse photography.
My photography is presently focused on editorial aviation imagery; mostly as a result of my exposure to the industry through my pilot duties. I have a passion for night landscape imagery, and a keen interest in astrophotography. I do consider myself a generalist, however, having exposure to general portraiture and a desire to explore fine art imagery.
I decided to create this site as a clearinghouse for my artistic and editorial photography, and as a jumping point for my freelance technology education services. Previously, I operated the independent consulting firm “IWC Computer Solutions” from 1999 to 2012, offering various tech-centric services from in-home training to corporate systems design and implementation.
Going forward, my technology focus will be centered around personal education and consulting services, with solutions-oriented training services and computer support. While I’m not in the hardware or software resale business, I will assist you in finding the best product to meet your needs, without a commission bias. I consider myself brand-agnostic, having maintained working knowledge of many brands and platforms throughout the years.
