I obviously have a resume however a list of jobs I've held over the last 17 yrs doesn't tell you who I am or what I've done so far. It merely tells you what I have done working for others to collect a paycheck. My road to self discovery began for me when I was 14. I was walking around filling out applications for my first job when someone approached me and said "Do you want a job?" That person was the manager of a One Hour Photo Lab. I started 2 days later, not knowing anything about photography,developing,I didn't even own a camera. Two years later I became the youngest assistant manager in the history of the company. I spent the next 15 yrs of my life Learning the trade, both behind the scenes & behind the Camera,learning about color & how to manipulate them to obtain exactly what the customer wanted. I learned to see things through the eye of a lense. I did attend school however I learned a great deal more by working for some of the most prominent photographers & artists in the county. I realzed that people were being over charged, forced to pick from a few images never having control over their own photos due to the copyright law. In 2001 I decided to take a different approach. I realized that I can provide the same, if not better service for the customer than the high priced photographers who's images I was correcting,adjusting color,density, the basic quality they required to make their images better so they could sell them to you, the customer, at a higher price so in late 2001, Lasting Impresions Photography was born with the help of my partner John,an amazing computer design specialist. Photography is a profession however there is no guarantee's when it comes to income. I spent the rest of my time working for company's designed to help save the planet. I worked for Environmental Engineering & construction company's as an Administrative Assit. & Client Liaison. Years of being on the front line,the first face & voice customers heard, I found my calling.
