The story of a photographer
Since a very young age, I have always been a creative guy, but with a passion for sports. It wasn't until I was a freshman in college at Temple University where I picked up an old film camera and my passion for photography grew. I've experienced the difficulties (although I enjoyed them thoroughly) of not only developing my own film, but black and white printing in the darkroom. This is where I really thrived. Once the digital age really took over is where I also grew a passion for image editing/retouching. This was a way to expand upon my photography and take my post production to the next level.
Since 2001, I haven't looked back. I have assisted/shadowed along side some well renowned photographers, encountered some of the most unique events, retouched images for some of the most established e-commerce companies (David's Bridal, Fanatics, Lord & Taylor, WebstaurantStore), and loved every minute of it. All these experiences shaped who I am today and those who've I worked along side, including my family, inspire me to continue my passion and love for photography and post production.
Fast forward to today, I work full-time as the Image Editing Manager with WebstaurantStore and I'm married to my beautiful wife Jody and together we have a daughter, Alora Rae and son, Leo James. With that said, I love kids and enjoy them as my subject. Sometimes I guess I just connect with them on their level since I am a child at heart.
