Bill Broyles discovered the Big Bend later in his life.  After 40 years in north and central Texas, Bill stumbled upon the Big Bend during a photography workshop in the 1990s.  He immediately fell in love with the Big Bend and moved here in 1994. 

His second career started as a volunteer for Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) at Big Bend Ranch State Park (BBRSP), but he was quickly hired as a park interpreter.  After 15 years with TPWD, Bill retired (again) to spend more time traveling and photographing the Big Bend. 

Still residing in the Big Bend, Bill has started his third career as a volunteer for TPWD, the Tierra Grande Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists, and more recently with the Borderlands Research Institute. 

Bill currently serves as a photographer for the BRI.
