Lifestyle Portrait Photography - Killer Joe Photography

My older son Joe and his family.

Raised by my parents who were married for over 65 years. Have a sister, two adult boys who are married and have three grandsons and a granddaughter.

First of all, I started taking pictures when I was about 17 years old. My first camera was a 35mm Pentax. I had a darkroom in my parents basement. The chemicals were smelly, that is what I remember most. It would take hours to develop the film and print a 8×10 inch black and white photograph. Digital photography has completely changed the process.

Growing up in Brooklyn involved playing “stick ball”, “stoop ball” and “slap ball”. Me and my friends would spend all day Saturday and Sunday in the “street” playing ball. “Stick hockey” on roller skates was lots of fun too. In the evenings, we would all sit on my best friends porch and talk until 1 to 2 am.While my friends were going to Yankee and Met games, I was taking pictures and playing jazz guitar.

I studied jazz guitar with Rick Stone and Jack Leone, both wonderful teachers.

I will work with you to get the photographs you will be happy with to display in your home, office and show to your family and friends. They will also make excellent social media posts.
