Professional Executive Headshots and Portraiture
My passion for photography goes back as long as I can remember and I owe it all to my dad, whose first camera is used as an element throughout our branding. When I was a high school freshman I took my first class in photography as an elective. I didn’t have a camera, so my dad took me to NYC and bought me a brand new Canon EF 35mm SLR camera. It was (and still is) an awesome camera.
Over the years, I took my camera almost everywhere I went and took pictures of nearly everything I saw. It was expensive in the film days (remember those days?) because you never saw the results until you got the film developed. For that reason it was important to know how to use your camera to get the desired result without wasting film and money. It was a great learning experience! As a youth I printed, framed and sold my photos at local art shows. It gave me a tremendous feeling of pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment whenever someone bought my photography! I carry that feeling with me to this day.
I was once offered some really great wisdom – “to be successful, do what you like to do.” This is advice I took to heart and decided to depart the corporate life to pursue my passion for photography. For me, it’s not only about the camera… it’s about the people, the smiles, and the satisfaction in knowing that I helped a family preserve a memory, or an individual or company in boosting their marketing, sales efforts, and corporate image. I love getting out and interacting with people and companies. Providing services to clients that meets and exceeds their expectations continuously rekindles the feeling of pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment I had as a youth selling my photos at the local art shows. My goal is your complete satisfaction with your professional headshot or portrait.
