And now for something a little bit different…

Thought that I would try something different for a change…let me know what you think. (3 1/2 minutes…maybe a little too long)

About Jerry

I was a science teacher for 31 years. During that time I photographed wedding and Bar Mitzvahs for about 15 years but that was in the days before digital. Being a teacher, I had my summers free so I assisted food and commercial still life photographers in NYC for 3 summers and fell in love with it. Having a wife and a mortgage, it was not practical to give up a job in teaching and go into photography so I put off my dream of becoming a food photographer until I retired from teaching. Now I am living my dream - I am a food and product photographer servicing New York City, Philadelphia and all of New Jersey.

    Love your photos. Even when I was 12, I think I knew you had all that creative talent waiting to come out.
    I was one of your students at JHS 189. 1982 to 83 I think. Two of my classmates, and your students, that I still keep in touch with, Takeshi and Ahmet, are meeting other 189 classmates on the sidelines of our Bronx Science 25th reunion this weekend. I’m not attending as I need to be in Hong Kong, but that prompted me to look up 189 and my favorite teacher.
    I didn’t ultimately go into science, but you created that spark in me for constantly striving for knowledge. I never reached out after graduating, but I had never forgotten you.
    Thank you for everything.

    Oh WOW. Thank you for those very kind words. 189 was a very long time ago. I taught in High School for 23 years after 189. I retired 3 years ago and have been re-dedicating my life to photography. (I did do wedding photography in the 80s while I taught at 189.) Please send my regards to all the 189 alumni. Thanks again for reaching out.
