My name is Manuel Ortiz and I have been working for the New York State Assembly for the last 18 years and continue to do so to this day. I work in the department of lithography in which I have been involved in just about every aspect of publication process for Assembly members. This work has encouraged me to learn a lot about computers, computer programming and how to process different formats for the preparation of pictures and literatures for printing. I also have worked for 13 years in the banquet industry as a waiter in order to afford my wife to stay home with the children. Over the years I have witnessed how the industry of photography treats the customer and how so many unprofessional people make a living in photography. So I realized with my knowledge of computers, photography, lithography and my knowledge of weddings and banquets and how to work with people I could turn my life passion into a business and at the same time give people the benefit of affordable photography. Since I don’t have all the responsibilities of a regular photographer because my health insurance, retirement and many other expenses are covered by my work at the Assembly, I can pass these saving to the people that hire me to shot their events. So give me a try and I will do my best to make your events memories last forever at a very affordable price.
Hello, my name is Chris Santos and it would be my pleasure to make your important moments and events into long lasting memories by being your photographer. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so you can understand why I am the right choice for you. My life’s long passion has been art, and to be more specific, photography as art. That is the reason why I obtained a Bachelors degree in Fine Art with a focus in photography. I have also been working in the printing industry, which has given me even more knowledge about the production of images. But more importantly then all of that is my love for capturing great, beautiful moments, in a way that is graceful, unique, but still true and enjoyable to you. I am a photographer, but what I can offer that many others cant is the fact that I am also an artist. This is why I can capture your special moments in a special way.
