Chairman of the Board of the Delaware Professional Photographers Association passed away

In Memory of Bill

Bill left us at 63 years of age on Thursday, July 29, 2010.

He was a two time past president of the Delaware Professional Photographers. At the time of his death he was serving as Chairman of the Board.

In 1985, together with 5 other local businesspersons Bill helped form the present Delaware Professional Photographers Association. We had over 55 members when we began in the spring of ’85. Bill himself became the president in 1989 and again in 2007 thru 2009.  Bill prided himself on winning many print competitions while being a member of the DPP. In the days when film was the only media used, Mr. Lattomus entered and won with many of the finest images that could be found.

Mr. Lattomus and his partner, Frank Shahan, captured many weddings and events in the Wilmington – Baltimore – Philadelphia Areas during the span of the last 30+ years. A classical photographer known for his gorgeous full length bridal images, Lattomus’ camera room was state of the art, with the finest equipment, props and backgrounds. At the time of his death, many of the same cameras and photo equipment can be found in his studio. Bill was not quick to begin using the digital media, but found comfort in still using film for he trusted the end result.

We hope Bill finds contentment in being with his new photographic mentor… The LORD.
