People are always asking me throughout the years that I have been doing Photography “WHY”? Why do I do this? Why do I want to work weekends? Why do I want to work a job that keeps me working 8-10 hours a day? Sometimes non-stop! So here are all the answers to those burning questions.
There is one basic word to summarize this that I can expand on and that word would be “PASSION”. I have been photographing events from the age of 14 years old. I started as an assistant in New York then actually photographed my first event at 16 years old. Once I started on this journey the bug just got into me and has been there ever since. Working weekends is just part of the deal so family and friends knowing I worked weekends made sure to plan way ahead for events and to let me be the first one to know so I could set aside that date. After awhile it all just becomes a way of life.
Then there are the 10 to sometimes 12 hour days. It is funny how time goes by so quickly at the events, the adrenaline starts to flow and the day begins. I get excited working with people and their family and friends it is a true pleasure to capture these moments as a Professional historian.
Pressure comes with the events; however I work well under pressure and actually have a calming and patient way of moving things in the right direction yet at the same time making sure they don’t miss out on their party. I am there to help them stay calm and be in the moment. There is not much I haven’t seen over the years, there are times when a song or a moment reminds me of a reflection of a past event which in turn makes me smile.
Feel free to call me for references or if you need help with other information for your event, I have a great deal of contacts and can steer you in the right direction.
Call me or e-mail me.
