Welcome To Finish First Photos, my event & sports photography website.

I am a New York City based photographer who specializes in Event & Sports Photography.  I have always been an avid sports fan who enjoyed "just taking pictures," and in 2010 I decided it was time to combine my two passions into one.  I began attending seminars with the New York City Digital Photography Workshop (nycdpw.com) and subsequently studied at the PhotoManhattan Photography School in New York (PhotoManhattan.com).  In 2012, my photos were part of an exhibition for new photographers at the SoHo Gallery for Digital Art in New York City (now the SoHo ArtHouse).  I began shooting freelance in 2014, which led to several events with SBNation.com sites, such as SouthOrangeJuice.com (a website for Seton Hall basketball) and for RumbleInTheGarden.com (a website dedicated to the athletics of St. John's University). In 2015 I assisted my first event with USA Today Sports Images at the 147th running of the Belmont Stakes & I also photographed the 2015 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Shootout.  Most recently I was part of a photography team assigned to cover the 140th Westminster Kennel Dog Show in New York City & in 2016 I joined the photography team of DoubleGSports.com.  Although Sports & Event Photography are my primary areas, you will see from my other galleries that I have an interest in additional photography fields, including nature, black & white, and night photography.
