My Photography Story

I am a wedding photographer.

My story doesn’t begin there though.  My photography story begins in my apartment as a child living in the Castle Hill Housing project in the Bronx.  A place where I noticed beautiful things and  beautiful people as I heard others speak of the ugliness that they saw.  I began to use the pencils that were given to me for school work to reproduce those beautiful things not realizing that this was a talent – simply doing what I did. As time moved forward I came to understand not everyone could do what I did and I derived joy not just from doing it but from the joy others had in seeing it.  When it was time for high school I wanted to attend one of New York’s specialized high schools so I applied to and entered The High School of Art and Design.  It was amazing.  What I did was the norm.  A preoccupation with the visual was not evidence of anything other than that you were an artist.

I loved it.

Then there was photography. Yes, photography. I didn’t like it. It wasn’t what I wanted to do. Give me a pen and ink or pencil and gum eraser…give me some charcoal. Just don’t give me a camera.  And so I didn’t try.

Not one bit…

and it showed.

I doubt my teacher did this often but he suggested that if I never picked up a camera again…well you can guess where that story goes.

And so when I, many years later, pick up a camera and actually look through the viewfinder it amazes me how much there is a craft to the whole thing. It amazes me because what I come to realize is the difference between someone who takes photos and a photographer. I discover for myself the art in it.

And, I am thoroughly and utterly hooked.

Then one day I am allowed to take the pictures at a wedding. I showed up with a camera completely unprepared. I am armed with a T3i and its kit lens plus a 70-300mm lens (the one you think is really nice because it gets really close). I struggle in that church to get shots but I am lucky because as an artist I understand light and because of that background framing an image is not a foreign concept.  When the pictures are ready the couple and others who see them are very happy and while the reaction is priceless – I am not happy.  I know what can be done if I actually know what I am doing and so I begin to set myself about the business of learning.

I am still learning. I think that will always be the case. And that is what allows me to deliver my clients something special. I am growing (learning) driven by a desire to capture the beauty and emotion of your moments.
