Hello, and thank you for taking a few moments to view my website. Hiring a professional photographer is as important today as ever, since the new technology of digital cameras, combined with computers, have brought about a new wave of photographers – especially in the wedding market. My sincere wish is to provide my clients with photography of the highest quality. Whether it is a wedding, family portrait, special event, or a companies annual report – I make every effort to insure timeless images are created, preserving those special moments.
I think my parents saw a creative spark in me at the early age of 12 when I received the gift of my first camera. Instantly developing a passion for taking pictures, it was inevitable that professional photography would be a lifelong career choice. Taking it very seriously, for formal training, I chose to attend one of the finest schools in professional photography. Three years of intensive training, and many peanut-butter sandwiches, awarded me the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Professional Photography. It was well worth the 8 years of paying off student loans, since I feel that this quality education has laid down an excellent foundation for me in professional photography. Over the years I have developed my skills in creating exceptional imagery, becoming a master of the craft. Today, I can sincerely say that the spark and passion is as strong as ever, leading me to continually produce beautiful pictures.
With the advent of digital technology, from automated cameras, to creating effects and correcting mistakes in the computer, many more photographers are coming into the profession with little knowledge of the photographic craft, and the key ingredient to photography – lighting. More and more are slaves to their computers and the art of photography from the “camera” is being lost. I strive to keep the art of photography alive by capturing exceptional images in the camera while practicing professional lighting in every situation.
For further inquires please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to help you with any of your photography questions. Thank you again for visiting.
Sincerely; Phillip Matthew Kocurek Professional Photographer/Videographer/Educator
