I am an Award Winning Professional Photographer from Western New York. I have been doing Photography for over 25 years and I have been a Firefighter for 32 years with this being said it makes a perfect marriage. I current do a lot of Photography for the Fire Service including the Photographer for the Southwestern Association of Volunteer Firemen which is located in New York State, I am a also Photographer for the Renegade Drum Corps as well as several fire departments in the area. I do not do a lot of fire chasing but if I am in the area I do make a effort to go to the scene and that some pictures for my brothers, when I am there I usually take photos of the firefighters in action and also I am thinking about the shot that I can enhance to really make it stand out in the crowd.
I also set up at show in the summer and try to sell my best work of art'
I currently use Photoshop CS6, Lightroom 5, I own every Topazlabs software they make as well as NIK software and some Redfield plugins.
I belong to NAPP and also subscribe to the Kelby Training I try to do about 1 hour of training videos a day.
