Work History
The Color Lab - Darkroom Technician
City, STATE, 08/1974 - 04/1976
This job was in the old days of photography, long before digital.

My responsibilities included developing and printing of color and b&w film and prints for professional photographers of all specialties.

My work was very technical including:
precise mixing of chemicals
custom b&w prints developed by hand in trays
custom color printing including determining color corrections determined by eye while viewing the prints through special color filters

This served as my introduction to precise technical work.

This was a part-time job during my university years.

The lab has since closed.
Stuart Peltz Advertising & Food Photography - Apprentice Phoographer
City, STATE, 10/1976 - 08/1978
Through a course I took at Parson's School of design, following my graduation from University, I was offered a position as an apprentice/assistant to a top NY Photographer.

I was responsible for putting up and taking down sets/cameras/lighting, assisting in all aspects etc. as well as keeping records of film & polaroids for billing purposes.

I learned from a master product photographer who instilled in me the passion for creating outstanding images of the highest quality.

In addition to many technical aspects I also learned about "light" and controlling it's "nuances".

This job served as my introduction in how to use and finally master the "view camera". The old-fashioned looking camera (in it's simplest form a box with a lens on it's front) that showed the image up-side down on a piece of glass on it's back that we would put 4"x5" or 8"x10" pieces of film into.
Steve Young Fashion Photography - Photographer's Assistant
City, STATE, 10/1976 - 08/1978
Concurrent with my working for Product Photographer Stuart Peltz I also part-time assisted his studio-mate on fashion shoots in the studio as well as on location.
