About Us


Bill Goode


I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My family portraits tell the stories, and capture the memories to enjoy for a lifetime. 


I grew up in Hoboken NJ and have a true love with the Jersey Shore. While I was working a summer after high school in Manasquan NJ I met the love of my life Amy on July 4, 1976. The rest is history. This is how a Jersey boy found his way to North Carolina. I have been in the Tarboro, North Carolina community for over 35 years. Working together at Bill Goode Photography, Amy and I  have gained a reputation for quality and outstanding customer service. My portraiture style has attracted a client base throughout North Carolina and the East Coast. Our studio speciality is fine art portraiture of families, children and I have been offering wedding coverage since the business began. Our most popular market area has been Greenville,NC, Wilson, NC, Rocky Mount,NC and throughout Eastern North Carolina. I am member of the Professional Photographers of North Carolina and the Professional Photographers of America, We are now located at 1914 Howard Avenue. After 20 years in our commercial building we have added the studio to our home and now open by appointment only. We still love what we do and thank our many clients that continue to make our business successful.

The Camera


I've loved taking pictures since I took my first photograph from the camera above on my way to being a professional photographer. I'm inspired by the love I have for what I see every day through my lens. I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments over the many years in my career. There's a picture around every corner. Let us help when you are planning your next family portrait.
