About MeLong Island born photographer William Occhi has always been insatiably curious and deeply driven by the visual arts. Feeling somewhat limited by what the suburbs had to offer William moved to NYC to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology.
While in FIT, he befriended several fashion designers and quickly became excited by the fashion world. His understanding of fabric structure and draping gave him a unique insight into how a designer thinks, and how best to capture the clothing.
While in college William began to assist several prominent fashion photographers and worked in local photo labs to further immerse himself into his art.
After graduating FIT he started work as a freelance advertising and fashion photographer.
Most recently, William has taken his skills to the next level in the fashion industry. You can see his cutting edge photography on editorial and advertising pages of high-end fashion magazines.
