Bill and Columbia DuBose found each other’s company suitable, and embarked on a quest for artistic collaboration as DuBose Studios, in commercial photography.
This was Dallas, 1982, but who’s counting?
Eventually, their creative and professional sphere expanded to include design and concept. As DuBose Studios evolved into Plum Creative, the work product refined and solidified. Columbia’s favorite fruit jam became the pun-moniker for these activities. Bill continued to include photography, and Columbia theatre, as time permitted.
Highlights of the results are represented in the enclosed portfolios. The collaboration continues, having evolved significantly, while retaining the core spark of two distinct artistic perspectives and backgrounds. Numerous agency and client representatives have joined this collaboration through the years, and the studio looks forward to building new relationships, and maintaining and nurturing the gratifying affiliations that have been one of the great blessings of this endeavor.

The best recommendation for Bill’s work can be summed up in my saying I wish he lived closer, he is always the first person I think of when I’m looking for a photographer. He’s not only outstanding in the studio with product, making it look better than it does in person, his work with people is amazing, he captures his subject like few others can.. Bill is a true artist behind the camera. I recommend him most highly and I’ve been in the graphic design business for over 30 years.Christina Mann
