Acclaimed photographer has Bourbon roots

October 18, 2011

BOURBON — Before he became a respected photojournalist at the Gloucester-Matthews Gazette-Journal in Virginia, Walter Becknell was just like any other teenage boy growing up in Bourbon. He took the first step toward what would become a life-defining hobby one day in 1938 when his father told the family about a hawk’s nest he had found in a field. Becknell’s interest in birds began that day, and he started his nature photography a short time later—taking his first photo with a Brownie box camera in 1939. He was 14 years old.
