Photography has been in my blood since I was a child and is my life-long passion. My father, Danny Kishter, was an avid photographer and his love of photography has been my inspiration. When I was twelve, he gave me my first SLR, a Nikon F2. The F2 and I traveled everywhere together.
I followed in my father's footsteps. My dad photographed people, travel and special occasions. He was a master in the darkroom. His greatest pleasure was making prints and giving them to friends and relatives and knowing they would cherish them for years to come.
In middle school, I shot for the Pikesville Pipeline newspaper and in high school I shot for the yearbook. I eventually majored in Photography and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications-Photography from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Since graduation I held various photography jobs ranging from stock photography account executive and editor, to photo librarian, to photojournalist, to freelance photographer. Some of my commercial freelance photography clients include: Campbell's Soup, Guest Informant Magazine, Coca-Cola, Action for the Homeless, Crabtree and Evelyn and People Encouraging People.
I am currently a freelance photographer shooting events such as: B'nai Mitzvahs, weddings, people, and travel. I am still a Nikon shooter believing in their ever improving digital gear.
I am passionate about capturing the way light falls on a subject and preserving a moment in time. I am moved by the way light transforms a subject and creates a mood. I believe that we can relive our memories through photographs and at the end of day the most valuable possession that we hold is our photographs unchanged by time.
