Thinking of You Photography Bio

Thank you for visiting my web site.  I’ve been a photographer since 1980.  I started out working for Varden Studios in Rochester doing high school and college portraits.  I moved over to Colorgraphic’s in 1984 shooting sports and children’s portraits.  In 2005 I started up my own studio with the name “Thinking of You Photography”  because I was tired of working for big studios where they just didn’t seem to care about YOU - the customer.  I’ve always tried my hardest to put myself in your place and think about how I would feel if I was rushed through my photo time.  I will always try my best for you.  If your not happy – I’m not happy!

Back in 1980 I also started my family that has grown to 5 young adults ranging in age from 37 all the way down to 21. I also now have 3 grandsons and 2 granddaughters that are between 6 years - 16 years old..  With the help and support of my family, I am able to do what I love to do – photograph you!  Not many people can say that they go to work and have fun.  

My beliefs in photography are about simplicity and being classic. You don't want lifetime photos done in a current passing fad that you will be embarrassed to show off in a few years. I believe that fancy overdone setups don’t make beautiful portraits – you do! I believe in taking the extra time to help you feel comfortable. This allows your natural expressions to show through easily. Facial expressions are the reflection of your personality. The backgrounds I use are simple, complementary and tasteful.

The camera just takes pictures.
