Which department do you work in?
I work as a photographer out of the Orlando Studio.
What are some of your daily tasks?
It depends on the season, but for the most part is setting up and breaking down photographic equipment, capturing images of students from PK to High School seniors, public relations and customer service with school personnel and parents at the schools, and anything else needed to ensure a pleasant experience for each and every one of our clients.
Here at Leonard’s we capture memories! What is one memory you are glad you captured through photography?
It will have to be the birth of my two beautiful kids Kayra and Jon Anthony.
What are three words that best describe you?
Some people consider me to be funny, helpful and friendly.
Do you have any special talents?
I love photography and I dabble a little bit in painting and drawing.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn to fly airplanes.
If you could meet anyone, living or deceased, who would it be?
Steve Jobs to pick his genius brain.
What is the best part of waking up?
The best part of waking up is knowing that I have a supportive family that loves me and drives me to be a better man everyday.
Is a picture worth a thousand words?
Most definitely! There’s no words to describe a beautiful photograph that tells a story and makes us think about our own existence.
