In 2001, Will turned his attention to his first love, art, and co-founded the Spurgeon Art Gallery in the Artist Colony area of Santa Ana, California. His photographic exhibits were displayed in several galleries and his work was described by one critic as "the boldest use of the camera in 60 years."

During this time he wrote, produced and directed his own short films, which showed in festivals throughout Southern California.
