It has been quite a journey getting here. I am glad you chose to come along. It seems strange that the things we do in life for fun become more than that over time. I had never really thought about making photography a second or even a new career but when I look back over the years, the writing was always on the wall.
I shot my first wedding at thirteen. I was not the hired help, but a guest at a family wedding. The camera was my first SLR, a Konica FS-1 with a 50mm f1.8 lens in full manual mode. You see that was when you really had think things through. There were no digital cameras that provided instant feedback, only canister upon canister of Kodachrome that only provided feedback once they were processed days later.
After that, I never stopped shooting. Throughout high school, seldom were there photos of me without a camera in my hand. Nevertheless, it was not until my oldest entered high school that I started to take my photography to the next level. From high school sports to prom photos, to senior portraits for my daughter and her friends, I continued to hone my craft.
Now some thirty years after that first wedding, I finally got off my tuchas (for those whose Yiddish is rusty -- my buttocks, my derriere, etc.) and started down the path of formalizing what I have done for enjoyment for so many years. Credit, however, must be given to my wife and family for this because, without their support, and my wife’s second shooting from time to time and her occasional swift kick in the, yep, tuchas, this would not have come to fruition. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. Thanks for coming along. You may want to strap in, it’s going to be a fantastic ride.
Oh… To make it official… We’re open and booking events for 2015.
