Describe in a sentence who you are.
I am a hard working photographer. I am also a very honest and humble person that is easy to get a long with. I try to stay away from all the drama and negativity and to always maintain a positive attitude. I am very creative when it comes to photography and I feel like I have an eye for things that not most people do.

 

Where were you born, and do you still live there now?
I was born and raised in Elmont, NY. It's a small town in Long Island which is also where I currently live. 

Did you go to school for photography or was it something you picked up yourself?
I am in the process of getting my Associates Degree in Photography and am also planning to continue my education with a Bachelors Degree.

How did you get into it?
I've always had an interest in taking photos but never really went through with it before. Only after High School did I really get involved in the car scene when I bought my Toyota Supra. I bought a camera just to take photos of my car as well as my friend’s, since I wanted to have proof of all the crazy stuff we used to do. Since then I really got into it and now I don't see myself ever stopping.

What’s your style?
I focus a lot on the location of the shoot and I also prefer to shoot at night. A nice backdrop on a clear night is a perfect shot for me.

How long have you been a photographer for?
I have been a photographer for roughly 3 years.

What kind of equipment do you use?
I currently use a Sony a77 and a850 with a Tamron 70-200, Tamron 10-24, and a Minolta 50 1.4. When I first started photography my mother wanted to buy my camera and all she could afford at the time was the Sony a230 when it was on sale. I started to buy more and more equipment from Sony and just stuck with them. 

I use Adobe Lightroom 5 to edit all of my photos. I also shoot a lot of nightlife stuff and Lightroom was a lot easier to work with when editing a batch of photos like that. I just got so used to it and learned it really well that now I edit all of my photos in Lightroom.

Do you have any favourite locations for shooting?
Anything with a city background, preferably New York City. 

What has been your most memorable assignment or vehicle/model to work with?
I was doing a photoshoot for one of my good friend’s orange Mazda RX-7. After we were finished he wanted a photo of him doing a burnout, but then the car caught on fire. You can see more of that here at http://www.stancenation.com/2012/04/25/500-hp-mazda-rx7-the-ups-downs/
