I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years. I am very passionate about what I do and I work in all forms of media to capture my images.
I purchased my first camera, a German Practika LBII, at the age of 15 and fell in love with the art of photography. As a young adult of age 16 I became an apprentice to one of New Jerseys oldest and reputable portrait studios where I learned classic posing techniques and studio lighting techniques from a true Master of his craft, John Kondreck, Jr.
At the age of 17 I purchased my first professional grade medium format camera, a Mamiya RB-67. I photographed my first professional (paid)wedding at the age of 20, and have been passionately capturing exciting and creative images ever since.
I am also a trained Portrait and Commercial photographer and a graduate of CMA/Germaine School of Photography in New York where I learned Commercial Photography, film processing and all aspects of operating a professional color lab and photographic studio.
I also have completed several workshops hosted by the leading legends in wedding event photography in the USA.After graduation I became a Jr. Photographer for Martin Cobin in NYC where I worked on projects for Coward Shoe, Newsweek, Glenlivet, Seagrams, General Electric and more.
Afterwards I became a Lead photographer for Garraway Studios/ The Slide Center in Rutherford NJ where I worked on projects for clients such as Revlon, Waterford Crystal, Lancolm, Howmedica, Panasonic and more.
As a photographer I have utilized my over 30 years experience to creatively and unobtrusively capture images in several different styles of photography such as Traditional, Journalistic, Illustrative and Fashion Based to tell heartfelt wedding story pictorals. My talent is constantly being honed and updated to compete with the ever changing trending styles today.
I'm using single light source as well as multiple light source configurations for creative effects. I spent years as a member of Professional Photographers Association of NJ where I have been awarded for my artistic photographic creations in portraiture and event photography. I have also been published in several major publications. My equipment is the latest Canon Professional Grade 5D MkIV with Canon L-Series II Lenses, Speedlights as well as Godox off camera strobe lighting and I have pro grade duplicate Backup equipment as well.
