About

I’ve been shooting for a little over 20 years,; I started out by shooting illustrative images for books. I was also a studio portrait photographer for a while (at another company ) and honed my skills with lighting, technical skills and working under tight deadlines.  I became a digital lab manager for the same company ( different division ) and was involved with the nuts and bolts of working with the commercial lab side of the business.

 I think this was an important step in my photographic education. I got to meet and see some of the best photographers and their work. Some had a great influence over my work as it stands today.

I belong to several different professional organizations; the Professional Photographers of America, the Society of Photo Finishing Engineers, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, as well as the Society for Certified Photographic Consultants. This allows me to keep up on the ever changing world of photography as well as trends.

 I have been privileged in being a speaker and instructor with several workshops and trade shows over the past few years. I enjoy this as much as the students and participants – it pushes me to keep creating and learning – to stay “relevant” . That’s the challenge and the reward – connecting with you; the viewer.

All The Best!.

  1. I’m looking for some photography classes/workshops/groups. I live in Eastern KY but I’m willing to travel.

    Any info that you have is appreciated.

  2. Hi,

    Since you deal with hundreds of photos on a daily basis, I wonder if you need an automated solution for eliminating the repetitive and mundane tasks like: watermarking, resizing, converting, and so on?

    Our solution, Bits&Coffee BatchPhoto (www.batchphoto.com), can automate all those basic edits by creating “hot folders” with associated custom scripts that will be applied to the newly added images. We have just released version 4 with lots of improvements.

    Interested? Email me back, I’d love to chat.

    Regards,
    Cosmin Unguru
