Will Cadena has been involved in the world of photography for as long as he can remember. Two of his uncles own and operate successful photography businesses, where Will worked and learned from the time he was about 13 years old (2001)
While working for his uncles, one doing commercial and advertising work, the other doing weddings and portraits, he learned the basics, and also two very different styles of photography.
Throughout the years, Will has merged these two styles, while incorporating his own ideas and visions. His own style has evolved over the years, as he continues to learn from, and teach to, some of the most well respected photographers in the business.
As Cadena continues to grow as a photographer, he is also growing as an educator and influential part of the photography community. He was one of B&H's featured photographers. He sees "paying it forward" as an important role of more seasoned photographers. He often talks about how he, himself continues to attend workshops because there is always something to learn. For this reason, he truly enjoys and values his opportunities to speak for some amazing companies, in amazing places! These include the Canon Experience Center in California, Album Epoca in Italy, and WPPI in Las Vegas.
His inspiration comes from all around him, as he loves to travel, dance, learn many styles of hand to hand combat, including Systema and Krav Maga, and seek out new adventures all the time.
