I live in Milford, MA with my wife Debbie, and two Siberian Huskies named Tiki and Miley Rose.
Photography has been a lifelong pursuit for me, though it wasn't until late in life that it became a profession. I built my first darkroom when I was a teenager, and spent as much time as I could taking pictures and developing them into black and white prints. I was fascinated by the entire process from looking for my subject matter to capturing it on a piece of film. It led my to my study of chemistry in college.
My first camera was a Yashica-Mat medium format camera followed by many Canon Film SLR's, In 2003 I bought my first digital camera, a Canon 10D. Now I shoot with the new mirrorless technology made by Sony, specialized 3D cameras, and a Mavic 2 Pro drone, of which I hold an FAA section 103 certificate to legally fly.
Today I have the time to devote to my photography and other more casual pursuits. You can count on me to be on time, listen to what you want, and deliver a final product when you need it. I guess you could say this is my professional work now. But when you enjoy photography and media creation as much as I do, it really isn't work. As for being a professional, I'd say judge me by the quality of my work. I'd like to earn that title.
