Can you tell us how you got started in photography?
I went to commercial photography school after college (The Portfolio Center in Atlanta, GA). After I finished the two year program, I assisted a variety of photographers in Atlanta. The work varied from studio, fashion, food, architecture and even industrial. After assisting for a couple of years, I began to pick up some clients and eventually was shooting for myself. I didn't start shooting weddings until about 5 years ago when I moved to Delaware to raise my family. After 20+ years of commercial shooting, I was ready for a change! I never thought I would a. be shooting weddings and b. love it so much!
What was the first camera you ever purchased?
Besides my first camera I got at 7 years old (a Polaroid SX-70) , my first camera when I was 16 was a Canon EOS film camera. It still sits on my shelf at my desk. After that I moved into 4x5 film, then Mamiya 645 film and eventually Nikon Digital then Canon Digital
What's the latest piece of equipment you bought?
Mag Mod Mag Box (it's brilliant)
On average how many pictures do you take per wedding?
I usually shoot around 2500 - 3000, between the second shooter and myself we will have 5000-6000
