About Us

Here are biographies about our photographers, in alphabetical order:

Paul Bardotz

Paul started in 1972 while stationed South Korea.  His first camera was a Konica SLR with a 50mm lens.  All Paul shot all his photos in black and white, a passion he still believes today.  Learning valuable darkroom skills and taking hundreds of photos around the country,  once Paul was stateside he continued to take and create photos.  Wherever Paul lived, he had a dark room.  Paul’s first professional experience was to document a ballet and dance studio including the recital.

Eventually Paul was taking thousand’s pictures of bridges and culverts for Monroe County Department of Transportation as a bridge maintenance engineer using a 5MP sensor Sony camera with a zoom lens. (It turned out to be a reliable and useful camera.)

Since retiring as an engineer, Paul has continued his quest to become a successful professional specializing in portraits, fashion, landscape, travel and any other areas in which there is a need for a photographer.
