Jill Waterman

While she never dreamed of being a cowboy, the gift of a cowgirl outfit brought Jill Waterman to tears, until her parents relented and replaced the dainty skirt with some pants. She caught the photography bug while studying art in Paris, and she hasn’t looked back since. After more than a decade as a photo editor (surrounded by mountains of slides of varying heights), she added writing to the mix as an editor of custom publishing projects for Photo District News. A team member of the B&H Explora blog since 2015, Waterman moonlights as a night photography specialist. Her first book, the technical volume Night and Low Light Photography, www.nightphotographybook.com, was published by Amphoto in 2006. Learn more about her ongoing project to document New Year’s Eve celebrations around the globe at www.newyearphotos.com.
