William Baeck: Writing & Photography



I began my professional writing career in 1983, documenting hardware and software for various companies in Silicon Valley.

During my 11 years as a technical writer at Adobe I was the editor and lead author of the Amazon and New York Times Number One bestselling computer guide, Adobe Photoshop 6 Classroom in a Book.

I returned to college while at Adobe, graduating from Stanford with a Masters of Liberal Arts degree in 2005 and a thesis titled Psalm 23: A Near East Hero Tale.

From 2005-2006 I lived in London. While there I wrote a blog that formed the basis of my book in progress, A Year of Our Own.

I began writing travel articles after returning from London, resulting in cover stories for the Contra Costa Times and the San Antonio Express-News, including a pair of travel articles on London for the latter’s New Year’s Eve edition, and a travel column for Examiner.com

I’m currently living in London again, writing my first novel and a regular column for Guitar World magazine.
