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.

Size Matters

When it comes to lenses, size matters. I have been doing bird photography with my 100-400 mm f/5.6-6.3 Canon lens and loving it. 400mm is big but not big enough to really get the birds at a distance. So, I … Continue reading
