Tom and I are both very active in many local and national photography organizations. We have had many successful gallery exhibitions and their work has been accepted into various juried exhibitions. Their photographs have appeared in Adirondack Life, Wild Bird, Birder’s World, in calendars and on calendar covers, and on the cover of a paperback novel. I (Lisa) have also had images accepted into the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) loan collection and earned Double Bronze with 4/4 open and 4/4 Artistry Images Meriting. Our images have won awards at the local, state, national, and international levels. We have been photographing weddings, babies, parties, portraits, etc. professionally for over 15 years and have their own Photography Studio in Hamden CT. Our portrait philosophy is based on “We do not remember days, we remember Moments”.
We teach photography a variety of image capture and post-processing workshops and seminars, in the classroom and in the field. We have presented a variety of instructional programs and workshops (Photoshop, Digital Workflow, HDR, RAW processing, Macro photography, Travel photography, plus fun and interesting travelogue slideshows) at NECCC, PPA, PSA, plus many other camera clubs and other organizations.

We are excited to have an opportunity to inspire you with their "Creativity is contagious, pass it on" philosophy and their “Don’t shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like” approach.
