Bill Reynolds

Bill Reynolds entered the western professional world more than 30 years as a graphic designer and has since led very successful careers in design and publishing as well as advertising and motion picture technical consulting for films such as Ruby Jean & Joe produced by Tom Selleck; The Horse Whisperer produced by Robert Redford; and All the Pretty Horses with Billy Bob Thornton.

In 1993 Bill and his father John Reynolds acquired Edward H. Bohlin Company, famous saddler and silversmith, after which Bill joined Cowboys & Indians magazine, remaining with C & I until 2007 when he left to devote time to authoring books and writing articles for a variety of magazines such as Western Horseman, American Cowboy, Horse & Rider and Southwest Art, as well as Cowboys & Indians. Dedicated to the western genre, Bill wrote two books we feature here, The Cowboy Hat Book and the award-winning The Art of the Western Saddle. Bill edited Edward Borein’s The Vaquero and Other Short Stories, featured here on Viva Vaquero. Partnering with horseman Buck Brannaman, he wrote The Faraway Horses (now a major motion picture) and Believe, A Horseman's Journey, also featured here on Viva Vaquero.

As President of Alamar Media, Inc., he co-produces the internet radio service Range Radio and the beautiful bi-monthly journal, Ranch & Reata. In addition, Bill is Editor of the Paragon Foundation's award-winning quarterly journal The Cowboy Way. Bill was pleased to assist artist Jack Swanson in coordinating his biography, Life and Times of a Western Artist, featured here on page 2. Bill continues to oversee the exquisite classic silver ornamentation & collectibles offered at "OldCowdogs.com," celebrating the horse culture of the Pacific Slope.
