Bill Hale started photographing Rock and Roll Bands in 1979 @ the age of 18.
In the 1980's, Bill was the Chief Photographer for Metal Rendezvous Int. Heavy Rock - Metal Magazine.
While on staff he was able to shoot many of the top bands of the day including Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Riot and UFO. Bill was fortunate enough to photograph many legends on their last tours of the states, Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), Bon Scott (AC/DC), Freddie Mercury (Queen) and Rory Gallagher just to name a few.
"MRV" gave 1st press to some of the biggest metal and Hard rock bands of the day. Anthrax, W.A.S.P., L.A. Guns and Armored Saint, the list goes on... Bill worked exclusively with MRV, yet, his work appeared in such Metal Magazines like Kerrang (UK), Enfer (France) and Metal Mania (San Francisco).
Bill now lives in Hawaii and still works with Rock and Rollers. His client list contains some of the state's most loved and legendary stars C&K, up and coming Guitar virtuoso Makana and the Hawaiian Super Star Henry Kapono!
