I was young, naive, ambitions and extremely focused. Within a year of picking up a camera for the first time, I became chief photographer of "The Evening Sentinel", a daily newspaper based in Connecticut. Everything photographic was under my charge from rolling and developing film to producing prints for press and writing articles to accompany my images. I was fortunate to be presented with outstanding (photo) journalistic challenges which taught me how to think on my feet and adapt to any situation. Those assignments and responsibilities also grounded me in a way no other "job" could. I have captured the simple, joyous and devastatingly sad moments in life and had the opportunity to photograph The President Of The United States, high profile politicians and celebrities.
It all came to a screeching halt on December 25th in the form of a generous Christmas "bonus": The entire staff was handed a pink slip and booted out the door. Ironically, it was one of the best things that ever happened to me because shortly after that I opened my very own studio: "Rogers Photography" and never looked back.
Presented in progressive collections, these works take me in a completely different direction from Rogers Photography. They allow me to freely express myself visually without having to worry about "expectations" and are intended to provoke, engage and spark imagination in a cathartic manner. The beauty of the work is in the beholder as the final interpretation is left to them. I hope you enjoy my work and share it with everyone you know!
