I have loved photography since I was 14 years old. I attended a 2 year very technical photography school after high school. I was taught poses and lighting patterns and worked mostly with models. I did not shoot people for a few years after that because each person got photographed the same way and it said nothing about them as an individual. I found it boring and repetetive.
I worked in a photo lab and shot weddings and portraits on the side for 10 years. I shot the weddings as they happened with some loosely posed photos. My portraits are very natural. People liked it. And now I love it! I have been shooting full time since 2007. I am very lucky to love what I do for a living.
My goal is to bring out your personality and photograph who you really are. I will capture the real you. And it will be fun!
I also photograph architecture and real estate for real estate agents, designers, builders, and architects. I am a licensed real estate agent in Douglas Elliman's Sayville, NY office.
When I am not working I usually still have a camera in my hand. I love to photograph whatever I stumble on. When I don't have the camera I always wish that I did, but my phone will do in a pinch.
