About the photographer = My name is Preston Knowles, I have 2 certificates in free lancing and have been working with photography for over 25 years. I'll be honest in telling you I am 90% self taught - the other 10% is from photo classes I've taken. I do this as a hobby and therefore not out to get rich. I am paralyzed and do not drive nor work in any studio - mother nature is my studio. In my own opinion using a man made studio is creating something fake - using mother nature is real. And that makes me have to work round her rules - the rain, snow and cold.
You can reach me at 607-794-7255, leave a message and I'll get to you as soon as possible. Email address is email@example.com (put photography on the subject line) and give an idea of what you'd like.
