Why A Professional Photographer?
I just wanted to start by saying that in today's world everyone has access to a digital camera, that can take beautiful images at any moment with a touch of a button with its automatic settings. Let's face it, almost everyone has one, this is the world we live in! So, you may ask: "Why not just have a friend or family member take my photographs?"
"Photography is an art; one that requires experience and practice" and in order to achieve w
Wow! Seems as if 2015 has flown by us... Where did summer go?
We are a week away from Autumn and looking back at the past months, we have witnessed great moments: proposals, engagements, weddings, graduations, births and during the summer some incredibly happy family reunions were celebrated!
But, as the Fall approaches, and we find ourselves nearly booked solid the next 12 weeks - with Family sessions, birthdays and before we know it Christmas time will be here, and all
While looking at my feed in my smartphone, as many of us do occupy with the technology which surround us, I came a cross an image posted by a fellow photographer Brian Joseph Calabrese This may be a truly beat on subject for those of us who own a professional photography business with a 'Print Your Images" and not a 'Shoot & Burn' mentality or model. For some a great educational read and perhaps, not such joy for others. But, in all truth.... I know that my clients already k

My Photographer: Peter Hurley | NY
Every passing minute....
Funny thing! I find that at 2:25 am I am writing about ME... And the magnificent moment in which the struggle of self-consciousness suddenly vanished... Those who know me, are aware - I do not get in-front of the camera often and not just because I am always behind it, but in reality it is more because, my being overly conscious of my looks and flaws...
Although, some pictures have been taken can
Why hire a Professional Photographer? While reading my daily usual fare of articles - I cannot help, but to emphasize on the incredible importance of various points while considering hiring a 'photographer" for a special day such as a wedding venue or a session such as your child's birthday or family pictures....
