We needed some very old photos and copies of photos restored for display in our building. Brock did a fantastic job of enhancing and reproducing the photos. The job was done on time and the results were even better than we had hoped.Nov 23, 2015Verified

Thank you, Susan.
Brock edited a digital photo of mine to remove some glare and sent me a few prints of the photo. He did a great and timely job removing the glare from the digital photo. The first prints he sent me had a skewed color scheme. I told Brock that I wasn't totally satisfied, and he immediately reprinted the photos and sent them to me. The second set of photos were perfect, and I'm very happy with them!Jan 22, 2013Verified
Brock designed and implemented my website and has designed flyers and posters for me. Years later people continue to complement me on my website. He has also done photography, photo retouching and photo restoration. Whenever I need something done on the computer other than word processing I contact Brock. He has also done copy writing, editing, business cards, and graphic design. All his work has been excellent and I recommend him without hesitation.May 7, 2013

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography with honors from University of the Arts (formerly Philadelphia College of Art). Associate in Applied Science in Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I began photographing at about the age of 4, learning from my father, Harry, to hold a camera and focus and release the shutter on a 35 mm Argus C1. Within two years, I was playing with a printing frame, 620 negatives and printing out paper, holding the printing frame to the sun and amazed as the images appeared. At age 11, at summer camp, I began learning to develop film and make enlargements in a darkroom. At age 13, I won my first photo contest, an Ansco Scholastic Art Contest, with a photo taken that summer of '53 at Camp Monterey in the Berkshires in Massachusettes.

At age 13, I won my first photo contest, an Ansco Scholastic Art Contest, with a photo taken that summer of '53 at Camp Monterey. During my 20’s, I won awards in many County Fairs and Outdoor Art Shows, including the Mystic Outdoor Arts Festival, one of the largest outdoor art shows in the North East, in which I was awarded 3rd place in Photography by photographer and educator, Harry Callahan. In 1965, I received an AAS in Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology. In the summers of 1964 and 1965, I studied with Minor White in (2)10 day workshops, receiving instruction in the Zone System, Creative Photography and Alfred Steiglitz's realization of Equivalents, "one of the major innovations of American photographic practice."— a symbolic aesthetic which embodies the awareness that "...objective records of reality could express subjective feelings." In 1978, I received a BFA with honors in Photography from University of the Arts, formerly Philadelphia College of Art. Those 3 years at Philadelphia College of Art were some of the richest with photographic experience and the love of art and the freedom of self expression within a community of others with a love of art and a goal of self expression. During 1968, '69 and '70, I worked as a Photographic Assistant in Advertising, Industrial, and Fashion Photography studios in CT (Robin Perry Studios), NYC, and in LA. I have been published in Newsweek and Time Magazines, national and international textbooks, Woodstock Times, Napa Valley Register, and San Francisco Chronicle newspapers, in two books of yoga postures, various book jackets, and most recently on the web at various web sites.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Lessons in learning to use a digital camera and in Photography. Scanning services. Improving, retouching, restoring photos and printing photos up to 13" X 19". Designing and building websites. Photographing yoga postures and yoga studio.
