How much experience do you have?

RJ started his career at a very early age as an assistant to his father. His dad had a Polaroid camera and once an image was taken, RJ was in charge of watching the clock and at the precise moment removing the paper backing to reveal the image. From there his passion for photography kept growing. He purchased his first 35MM SLR camera at the age of 14 and was an avid member of the high school photo club and one of the photo editors of the school newspaper. In 1996 he decided to take his photography to the next level and started photographing weddings professionally. Since that time he has captured upwards of 300 weddings, numerous family and personal portraits, events, and for the last several years has been an avid model photographer. He is a current member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America). He attends numerous classes and seminars throughout the year to stay abreast of the latest trends in photography and has studied and learned from some of the premiere photographers in the United States. He has also taught classes on basic portraiture and lighting techniques.
