What make me stand out
What makes me stand out from all the rest? Diversity! You don’t believe me? Then all I can say is give me a challenge; ask me to create for you a vision only one of the best top notch photographers can produce. Even better challenge me to create something new and original. For me I can tell you outside of budgets the sky is the limit.
I have spent the most of my love and passion in this industry studying the best and becoming one of the greatest photographers in our area! More so what I can tell you about me is that this is not just a hobby or a profession for me.
This is who I am and all I do. It is my only interest to continue to grow and learn always becoming better then yesterday till the day either leave this world or no longer have the strength to lift the lens of a camera to my eye.
From the time I started at 28 with no prior background I was quickly on to seeing some of the best of the best and the worst of the worst this industry has had to offer me. I found myself in my first production print just 3 months after I started and had a bank account running quickly into the red! I have held and worked at studios in 3 major cities on the east coast one of which Hoboken, Nj everyday working inside a 22,000 square foot studio just 2.5 miles from the empire state building and all New York had to offer. I have seen my up’s and downs without any doubt! Everything from the many beautiful women, celebrities and heads of large business to the constant battering of the industries darker sides and scams which so quickly can have you broke and jaded. I even suffered a massive skull fracture and brain injury just two years in. In fact it is only now that I am nearing a full recovery and looking to press on as only one with a passion and love like mine can. I don’t say any of this with conceit but simple confidence founded on a strong record of the life I have lived. Many may tell you that they are a photographer and how they are the ones to help. I can only tell you that when you meet the real deal photographers out there you will know it.
So I am proud as I can begin to say I am entering in with such a small handful that knows this industry as deeply and truly as I do. With great joy as I am found this handful that make their everyday priority finding a way to become better at their craft. If someone asked me where I will look or hope to be in 5-10 years I would say to them that I would likely still be very nearly broke but still giving it my all to reach the cutting edge and be part of a new tomorrow. As technology and social interest products continue to grow we will find ourselves in a ever changing and faster pacing society then the years before. The job for me and those like me will be to find the answers of how to keep it from being forgotten. Sure it faster but that doesn’t mean we need to let it slip by! For our families and for the records of our history I am here to help you, your loved ones and passions be remembered and passed on to the many generations to come that will look for the answer to themselves just as we do.
I am currently working toward developing a portfolio for family photos in my local area. As always I am looking to create new highs in the fashion and advertising industry as to attract larger company and agency interest. Another goal I currently have is creating international award winning portraits. This is a project that you will see me updating in my blog regularly!

Another developing interest I have been working with is Video. The following is a example of my 3rd video production that was shot on a Hoboken Nj studio roof top just across the water from New York City!!
