My website www.photoroyalestudios.zenfolio.com is 're-birth' of sorts of my professional photography and features the type of photography that I most enjoy doing.
From my late teens until my mid 30's I made my living as a professional photographer in a small upstate NY town doing mostly portraits and wedding photography. I was a full service studio and did all my own B&W and color processing. My studio's name was Photo Royale Studios and was the place to go for professional photography.
By my mid 30's I got bored with doing this type of photography 'just for the money' and my interests took me into a number of different business interests over the years. By the mid 90's I hardly touched a camera any more and had no interest in learning about the new digital photography revolution.
But in 2010 the photography bug bit me again and I've become immersed re-learning photography in the digital age and doing the type of photography I truly enjoy and doing so because I love it and not because I have to for the money.
So now as I'm getting closer to completing the 'circle of life' per se, I'm enjoying completing my life trip by where it all started in the beginning, my total joy and fascination with photography. And to that end I resurrected my old studio name for the nostalgia and the many great memories I have of 'back in the day'.
