Welcome to The Knight Gallerie Family of Friends!

Welcome to The Knight Gallerie!

I'm Billy Knight, your host, photographer and wood crafter!

I am a 20 year Veteran of the U.S. Air Force. I served as a C-130 Hercules Aircraft Loadmaster. In 2012, I hung up my wings to finish my Master's Degree. Now I am a college professor and owner of The Knight Gallerie. When I'm not teaching, I am in my wood shop making a mess...;-) When I am not in my wood shop making a mess, I am prowling around with my trusty Nikon looking for interesting things to photograph.

I started collecting guitar picks a few years ago. I was photographing a Cheap Trick concert and caught a pick tossed to me by Rick Nielsen. It ended up in a drawer. I needed a way to display it—I couldn't enjoy it in the drawer! So, I created a nice perch and pedestal. I have over 3000 guitar picks in my collection and am offering a few here for you to enjoy and purchase.

I am currently building a photo gallery as well. I photograph everything from classic, old barns to Top Fuel Dragsters!

I hope you enjoy perusing my shop. By all means, drop me a note to say hello!

I invite you to visit my Facebook page:


This is a portrait of "reverse woodworking." You figure it out...;-)
