Yes, I hear that all the time, and my response to them is, "Yup! I taught it everything I know!" You see, it does take some pretty good equipment these days to keep up with the growing demand of quality, but I honestly believe that it is the person behind the lens that makes the picture, when you see my photos, I think you'll agree.
I found my passion for still photography just a few years ago, I started out as a news photographer at WSEE TV in Erie Pennsylvania, back in 1984. After directing the local news, running studio cameras, and splicing film, I then took to shooting local TV Commercials and still shoot them to this day.
My philosophy is simple: Practice, Practice & Practice, there's not a day that goes by that I'm not learning something new, a new technique, a new angle. I've been dubbed "Snappy" by a few friends of mine, I'm sure it's not for how I dress, but for always having my camera in my hands.
If you are searching for a unique, one-of-a-kind photo experience, hire me, and you'll never see the world the same again.
"Wow, what great photo's, you must have an awesome camera!"
