I love the puzzle that different assignments pose. My training at the Rochester Institute of Technology prepared me for a wide variety of technical situations. Working with the general public for 40 years taught me many ways to use the camera to help different people look their best. It's a great feeling when all the elements come together to make a good portrait.
I love collaborating with customers to create something they will cherish and enjoy for years to come. There is a great satisfaction that comes from a job well done and delivering a beautiful finished product.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
When a person or group come to me to have a portrait made, it's usually already a special occasion, place or time in their lives. My job is to capture that by arranging the background, posing people to look their best, and connecting with them to elicit the right expression. Commercial photography is more documentary. In RE photography, the important features must show or in photojournalism, a story must be told.
