University Photographer

My experience as a university photographer has enabled me to effectively tell the exciting and unique story of higher education. A University has many stories to be told with its dynamic student body, accomplished faculty and beautiful campus.

Photography amplifies a university’s voice and helps the administration accomplish their marketing and communications goals. My extensive experience as a photographer to Binghamton University, Hillel International, London Business School, Columbia University, and as a Digital Media Specialist strongly support my application for Northeastern's position of Staff Photographer. 

I do... still!

Renewing your vows.

 I always photograph the first time. The first time two people come together with friends and family and say, "I do, I do".

Every wedding I've photographed has been an honor. With some studios photographing 250, 300 or more weddings a year you start to realize certain unfortunate things. Every year there are about 10, or more albums which never get picked up or even finished. The odds of a successful marriage become clear. 

After 30 years,  John decided to renew his vows and surprise his wife, Dawn. Dawn was presented with a special note from John and a box containing a dress. Suddenly everything became clear. She had to get ready. 

20 minutes away the rest of the family was ready and waiting for Dawn's arrival.

Martino Auto Concepts - Ferrari Art Car

Crash (b. John Matos, Bronx, New York, Oct. 11, 1961) is a graffiti artist. As early as 13, John Matos was spray painting New York City trains, the full image art as opposed to simpler tagging soon transferred to silk screened canvas. He was first noticed through his murals on subway cars and dilapidated buildings, he is now regarded as a pioneer of the Graffiti art movement. His work is said to convey a "visual link between street life and established society". In 1980, Crash curated the now iconic exhibition:"Graffiti Art Success for America" at Fashion MODA, launching the graffiti movement that has remained very active through today. By the 1980s Matos had exhibits across the United States and abroad. Galerie Yaki Kornblit was the first instrumental gallery in Amsterdam that help launch his career in Europe. In 1981 Crash, along with 10 other artists were chosen by The Public Art Fund to design animated imagery for The Spectacolor Billboard in Times Square. He was given his first gallery showing by Sidney Janis at the Sidney Janis Gallery in 1983. Chase Manhattan, N.A., as well as CITIBANK, N.A., and other collections came calling.


Now, on Saturday, March 29, 2014, "Crash" joins Martino Auto Concepts (MAC) of Glen Cove, NY to paint the "Ferrari Art Car". 


The SnoBall 500 is a winter Raptor Run/driving experience. During the run drivers encountered everything that Mother Nature and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan could throw at them; areas of two track roads, logging trails, forest service roads and country roads. Road conditions varied with different amount of snowfall on them, from significant snow fall to minimal/scraped country roads. From the moment we slapped the SnoBall 500 window decal on our truck we were in for a unique and exciting weekend. The 2014 SnoBall 500 was a journey. 

This trip was cold, long, and exhausting. However, it was exciting, beautiful, unreal and a true escape. 72 Ford F-150 Raptors, 100+ guys and a few gals, and untouched, snow covered roads = an awesome time. We constantly shifted timezones. We wound up in areas in which calling AAA, or the police/fire department would be useless; that's if we had cell service. 

Photographing the event was challenging. Each group and each truck within the group held its position the whole day. There was no passing, and there was no coming back to the same trail. I had to photograph from the truck! I often photographed out the rear window and side windows. My only time to jump out was when we regrouped, or if we stopped for a bathroom break. 

The London Business Experience

9/29- 10/13

5 days. It took 5 days to catapult me from what I thought I knew about photography and videography, to where I am today. Working for LBS has been one of the greatest experiences I have had to date. 

My goal as a photographer and videographer is simple: create unique and interesting content that gets people talking and interested in the subject matter. As a full time digital marketing analyst my love for photography and videography have allowed me to fully develop a 360* view of the marketplace. I know the product, I know the consumer and I know how to bridge the gap between the two. I love marketing and I love creating amazing media. 

My goal is to help you, my client, enhance your SEO (search engine optimization) by growing your web presence, and doing so with interesting and unique content. I want to help you strengthen and grow your overall market by capturing peoples attention. And then, I want to look at the analytics and develop a qualitative strategy to better understand our market. Why are people looking at X and not Z? What captures their attention and what keeps their attention?  These are the questions LBS and many others are asking. The following images and video are a testament to LBS's understanding of, appreciation of and commitment to effective digital marketing.
