I first picked up a camera as a kid...i'm not sure exactly what age, but knowing I could freeze frame a moment? It Changed me. The camera? It was my fathers Pentax Spotmatic 35mm...one he had brought with him to Kenya in the 60's. I still have that camera, and on occasion I still use it.
Shortly thereafter, I got my own Kodak point and shoot and spent the better part of 5th grade taking photos of everyone around me, not many of them were what i'd call spectacular, but that was how it truly began.
Then, in 1999, I received my first digital point & shoot, an Olympus. That's when I decided to create LCPhotowerx. Ever since, I've taken some type of camera with me everywhere I go, be it my Canon 7D MK II, which I've nicknamed Dorothea(After famed photo Dorothea Lange), or one of the many vintage cameras I collect...and am slowly attempting to restore.
Once I was the primary photographer for most Staten Island based incidents involving the FDNY and NYPD, with my work published in magazines and featured on many local news agencies, including NY1 News and WABC TV.
I've since transitioned from that genre, expanding into construction, general photojournalism, environmental, portraiture, sports, cosplay and special event photography.
A self admitted eccentric, I generally try and keep the crux of my work on the lighter, more positive side.
Additionally, I've banded together with fellow photographers and artists, including the award winning Tabitha Lee Turchio, Cassandra Teixeria, Allison Scully, Mari Forrester, and social media specialist Kristin Heise to make LCPhotowerx a conglomerate of visual excellence with broad ranging, eye-catching sights to be seen.
Much like the A-Team, if you have a photo-related problem, and if no one else can help, you can hire us.
