It seems to me that sight and visuals were always a part of my nature. Photography has been a way for me to ignore time, explore, and help understand the way I ventured in the world. I find that the photographs I take for myself are still grounded in the same exploration and losing oneself in time.
I learned the art and skill of commercial photography initially from George Faraghan of Philadelphia. I began by sweeping George’s floor and I discovered some of the most basic and important lessons I follow today. George’s studio was filled with every piece of equipment imaginable. He still used the first commercial strobe unit ever sold. I would wheel heavy metal boxes containing 800 watts of power from set to set. These boxes could be piggy backed together in order to boost the power. The contraption would explode with light then rattle and roar itself back to capacity.
I then moved to Impact Studios, the largest commercial studio in Philadelphia. We had 5 studios, in-house labs, a digital editing suite, and a staff of 7. I was studio manager and one of three shooters. The biggest lesson I learned is that attitude can help but sometimes attitude is just a waste of time
Today I run a state-of-the-art digital studio in Williamstown Massachusetts. We have been working digitally for 7 years and can provide comprehensive photographic services efficiently and creatively. The studio can handle all color management, retouching, and post production. I work with all types of clients and their needs. I run the studio based on creativity and passion. We can offer companies the photographs they need to move their products at a price that reflects the future of competition.
