Bill Jeffries was a public school science teacher from 1967-1975. Switching to art in 1976, he did a BFA at UBC, and later an MA at SFU. From 1983-1987 he operated the Coburg Gallery which, at the time, was the only commercial photo gallery in Greater Vancouver.
From 1988 to 1991, he was Director/Curator of the Contemporary Art Gallery, and after three years with Vancouver Art Gallery, he was Director/Curator at Presentation House Gallery from 2001 to 2005.  He ran the galleries at Simon Fraser University until late 2012. In the mid-1990s he worked at a range of environmental organizations, focusing mainly on wetlands preservation in British Columbia. The tintypes in this exhibition come from his photograph collection.
