Years of experience has brought me to this point in life and my career. Started taking photos with a Nikon F 35mm as a teenager, built a darkroom with the help of my father and learned and enjoyed the process of making 8x10s. Then life, a family, need to make money, no starving artist here. Not counting the shutter on the Nikon broke. My budding creative career was on hold, at least for a bit. After a short time working as a plumber with my father, I went to college to learn TV Broadcast. Turns out I had the knack- for the technical and creative, I like to say. I started an almost 20 year run at a small station in Philly then moved to NYC and became an editor. Not to live, commuted from New Jersey,. Again, it turns out I was pretty creative. I edited at many different facilities including all of the networks. Did pretty well, didn’t become famous like..…well, nobody remembers the editors. Made some money and had some fun.
Then came the beginning of the digital age and since I had the technical knack, remember that, I became a broadcast engineer. Involved in the beginning of an era was fun. Non-linear editing systems were here to stay. Everybody wanted one, so I was pretty busy and pretty good. Worked all over Manhattan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania. Hell, too busy. That lasted almost 10 years. Then 9/11 and I was done with New York. I didn’t get hurt and thank God nobody I knew did. But enough is enough. I started a business for hitech systems for homes and businesses in NJ. Pretty technical stuff but very exciting being at the beginning again. So, I’m creative and technical now what. Out of the blue, Christmas 2008 my lovely bought me a Nikon D60 and I was back. DSLRs are the perfect combo of creative and technical. Few things make me happier than shooting that perfect photo.
Now, that’s all I do. I hope you will enjoy my work. To help the starving artist please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
