Born and raised in Upstate New York, I have had an interest in photography ever since I was a child. Growing up, my uncle Dennis Curatolo, owned a camera center in town. Here I spent years observing the photo processing and sales side of the business. I later studied darkroom photography in high school and throughout college.
After graduation I relocated to Orlando Florida, where I co-created Limelight Images with business partner Joseph Stalone. Our focus is in commercial photography, web design, and brand marketing. We also serve as a HUB outlet for freelance photographers and nightlife photography companies across the United States.
In 2007 I began working as a Photography Manager in the Photo Imaging department of Walt Disney World. I manage the day-to-day Character & Icon photography operations throughout select theme parks and resorts.
My personal interests lie in Glamour, Portraiture & Architecture photography. By mid 2009, I started producing freelance work under MC Photography. My work has been classified as traditional, and I favor B&W photographs.
In 2010 I co-created Limelight Weddings, a division of its parent company Limelight Images. Here our focus is in engagement and wedding photography.
My newest enterprise began in 2012, in collaboration with my cousin Matthew Paushter. MPMC Photography is now nationwide, delivering artistic style and iconic imagery to our clients.
Currently I am involved in the creation, and upcoming release of the Limelight Magazine. A publication focused in all aspects of digital art, high fashion, and creativity. Currently in the development stage, it will be released quarterly in digital form, later this year.
My prices are very reasonable. At times I will do TF work if the model fits the specific look I need for a portfolio building opportunity. Or if I am presented with a unique concept that interests me. Never hurts to ask.
I believe that every picture tells a story, and ensure that each image will be unique in its own light. I am always looking for new models to photograph, and new photographers with whom to work. I am committed to providing top quality images that will keep you frozen in the Limelight forever.
