QUROSCURO PHOTOGRAPHY is not doing any TFP or TFCD shoots.
I've been a Photographer since 1997 when I started photographing local bands at their live shows, and doing promo shoots with them. After about 5 years of doing that, I realized I needed to improve my skills. I started attending classes at Cosumnes River College's Photo Dept. in 2002. Since doing so I have started my own photography business. I love to shoot with people. I have several years of photographic lighting experience in both the studio and “location” settings. I’ve assisted Bill Santos, who has 25 years experience. I’ve learned a great deal about Corporate, Product and Fashion Photography over the past 6 years from him. Joe Peduto has over 15 years of experience and has taught me a great deal about Architectural and Corporate Photography over the past 2 years.
