Photographer. Teacher. Musician. Husband. Father. I am a man with many identities.
For nine years, I've been lucky to live with my best friend, Tanja, my wonderful wife from Finland. We met in Israel, got married two years later, and have been exploring the world together ever since. We've seen incredible landscapes (Iceland, Utah, Norway) and wandered through breathtaking cities (Paris, Venice, Québec). Even though we are frequently traveling, we are so grateful to call North Jersey home, with NYC right in our backyard and our family just an hour south. And home is now filled with our five month old son, Walden Ray!
I've had many interests throughout my life but one passion has been constant - photography and digital editing. At just thirteen years old, I was already hooked on the power of Adobe Photoshop.
Seventeen years later, I am still so excited to take, edit, and share my photographs and I work on improving my photography each week. In terms of photographic techniques, I utilize many, including off camera flash, long exposures, bracketing (HDR), the Brenizer method, and light-painting (#pixelstick). For weddings, I include same-week sneak peeks for immediate social network sharing and deliver the entire edited collection in less than two months.
The world truly is a gorgeous place. I've camped on the Great Wall, floated in the Dead Sea, hiked under the midnight sun - but of all the scenes I've seen, of all the photographs I've taken, my favorites are the ones that capture love. From engagement photos to wedding vows to family portraits, nothing brings me more joy than capturing and sharing these cherished moments.
