What would you like to get from this meetup group?

My goal is to provide the group with some great workshops, photo walks, seminars, webinars, and lots of activities that will include photography and Adobe Photoshop / Lightroom.

What is your level of photography? (Amateur, Intermediate, Advanced, Professional)

I'm a professional photographer.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I love photography! I still remember the day I got my first camera. I was 13, and it was a present for my Bar-Mitzvah—a simple, fully automated film camera. Reflecting back, I suppose I can say that my photography career began then, and blossomed when I took photos on all of my high school's field trips. It wasn't until several years ago, when I began taking photos at night club parties for a corporation, that I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Those projects gave me the experience of capturing candid and staged photos from many unique angles and views. After taking photos of happy people having fun and enjoying life, from there it was a natural progression to wedding photography. I love capturing the special connection between a bride and a groom and finding a way to express what I see of their relationship in a photograph. For me, there's no better feeling than to have someone look at my photo and say, "Look at that picture ... that is awesome!"


I'm an Adobe ACP (Adobe Community Professional) and a professional photographer.
