I grew up in the small town of Orange, Massachusetts. I would say my love of old cars began there. My Uncle was always tinkering with and restoring old Volkswagen Beetles, not my choice of a hot rod, but seeing all the old parts and styles vary from year to year I think is what hooked me on to the older generation of cars and of course a neighbor across the street had a shop and quite a collection of classic hot rods I didn’t stand a chance. As far as my photography I didn’t stumble upon an interest until about 2010. I bought a cheap point and shoot. I actually was just takin’ photos of the kiddos and a friend of the family asked if I could do their engagement photos, I wasn’t thrilled about the idea, but they were in need of someone so I took the plunge and did the engagement shoot. I found out my love of automotive photography while playing around at the car shows with the camera in hand, and getting home and plugging away at the editing program and watching how fellow photographers who were way more experienced then I thought I could ever be, so I picked their brains some and asked many, many questions. Eventually I learned the do’s and don’ts. I have also found what is my style not to copy cat someone else’s success.
