Photography is my passion!
The passion I have for photography goes back as long as I can remember and I owe it all to my dad, whose first camera is used as an element throughout our branding. In 1973 when I was a high school freshman I took my first class in photography. I didn’t have a camera, so my dad took me to NYC and bought me a Canon EF 35mm SLR camera. It was (and still is) an awesome camera.
I took my camera almost everywhere I went and took pictures of nearly everything I saw. It was expensive in the film days because you never saw the results until you got the film developed. For that reason it was important to learn how to use your camera and know how to get the desired result without wasting film and money. It was a great learning experience!
As a youth I printed, framed and sold my photos at local art shows. It gave me a tremendous feeling of pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment whenever someone bought my photography! I carry that feeling with me to this day.
After graduating from college with a marketing degree, my great uncle (a lithographer), having seen my photos hanging throughout our home, developed a great appreciation for my photographic talents and encouraged me to pursue a career in the graphic arts. Taking his advice I secured what became a 30 year career in product management, marketing, and public relations for the leading industrial supplier to the graphic arts and printing industry. I was active in the corporate world, complete with the excitement of international travel, high profile public speaking, writing for major industry publications, and worldwide major trade events. This career was a perfect compliment to photography because one of my main responsibilities was the reproduction of color.
I was once offered some really great wisdom – “to be successful, do what you like to do.” I took that advice to heart and decided to depart the corporate life to pursue my passion for photography.
My goal is your complete satisfaction. Whether it’s your professional headshot, a corporate event product photography, or photos of a home that will showcase it as best as possible and be an asset to achieving your sales objectives.
