About the Book
"Custom" explores the beauty of classic American cars, uniquely brought back to life by their owners. Every car is a one-of-a-kind, customized to fit the vision of its owner. Each book in the series will feature a different event or show, beginning with vol. 1, shot at the Tri-5 car show in Clarence, NY (7/4/2010).
I started exploring photography at the University at Buffalo, where I earned a minor in fine-art photography. Following college, I enjoyed a brief career as a studio manager, digital artist, and professional photographer working here in Buffalo as well as in Rochester. I left the photography business in 2004 to pursue a teaching career. I have enjoyed that decision, and am currently working in school administration. Although I took a break from shooting, there was always the knowledge I would someday return to photography, but on my own terms. Well, that time has come. I plan on working on projects that have a strong personal meaning.
