Professional Summary

“A little bit about me”

I am currently a student with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh (online division) pursuing my Associates of Science in Digital Photography. I love art and creating art. Not only through photography but also through graphic design. Being able to work as both a photographer and a graphic designer makes me more relevant in today’s digital world. I am very creative and have the skills to look at problems from different perspectives, to find the best solution to the problem. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to working with Adobe Lightroom, and just about all their other creative programs. Including Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design, and the other creative suite programs. I am very dependable and self-motivated to put my full effort and knowledge into what I am doing. Especially when it comes to my Photography, and post production work related to photography. Along with the usage of Adobe software and other types of digital media. I have a very keen eye for the perfect shot. I am always very customer friendly and believe in making a positive impression on them, that way it creates repeat customers. In turn generates profit for the company. I’m always looking to learn new things, no matter what it is. I am also mechanically inclined if it is ever needed. There is no problems with having to work long hours to complete a project on time, while holding up to a client’s high standards. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to working with computers and can use all of the Microsoft Office applications. I can also use either Windows or Mac operating platforms. I enjoy photographing just about any subject. I enjoy photographing just about anything. I also understand photography post production for websites and for print. I can also format layouts and create unique designs for prints and websites. I also have knowledge and experience when it comes to printing. Whether it be color management, different types of printing for printer profiles for different types of paper, I have learned all the different needs in printing. Not to forget, but I also have previous experience in manufacturing, production, assembly, quality control and machine operation and maintenance. I realized that taking online classes requires me to be self-driven and show that I’m able to work on my own with little to no guidance other than the work instructions. You will be amazed at all the different things that I know how to do. If I don’t know something I am very quick to either, ask questions or find out the answer on my own. I have two personal traits that I am very proud of. The first is that I am very honest. The second is that I am highly dedicated to my work.

Last job I did was being a photographer covering the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017. I was photographing runners as they crossed the finish line with them showing off their medals. It was very fast paced shooting non-stop. I was extremely thrilled with doing the job. From the first runners crossing the line, it was non-stop shooting all day. I enjoyed the whole experience, and if asked to do it again I won’t hesitate in saying. Doing this job was a great learning experience for me and my photography career.

“A little bit more about myself”

I also have extensive training in working in a studio environment through my schooling with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. This training deals with multiple types of lighting set ups including a hot shoe flash, studio modeling lights, also using studio strobes. My schooling didn’t start with lighting though. I first learned the basics about art and the elements of art. How to look for the best composition. How to get the most out of a camera to give more depth to a photo, or less depth. Or you can use selective focus to give the subject more emphasis.

I am very friendly person who likes to enjoy coming to work every day. I love photography with a passion. When I first started out, I never realized how many tools were needed. Now it seems like all I do is spend money on gear. The amount of gear I currently have is a nice amount, but I’m always wanting to but more. I learned that you need to have a lot of gear to be prepared for any kind of obstacle or situation that may arise during a shoot. I have had this problem before where I didn’t have the proper gear and ended up having to make my own tool on the fly. My trick is to always come prepared with everything you may need and know how to use the gear the correct way to make the best photo. Knowing how to use the gear properly will help get the perfect shot when it is combined with proper timing and correct settings. Which is something I’ve been learning how to do over time and with a lot of practice. If you decide to hire me, it would be a very smart decision. Especially when you need a shoot done on time and are looking for a highly-dedicated photographer who can work in any genre.

Why I love Photography: A brief history of how I got into photography.

Well, I was always into art because of my brother being an artist. He would always ask my thoughts on his work, and from him I gained a love from art. My problem was that I couldn't draw or paint or well be an artist like him. But I got introduced to Photography by my best friend while recovering from knee surgery. And from my first camera, which was a little Fuji point and shoot, I was hooked. From there I got myself a Canon DSLR. At the time, I lived right outside Philadelphia, PA. I would ride the train into Philadelphia and walk everywhere learning how to use the camera and I was hooked. I would spend all day and night walking around Philly taking pictures. It was a great way to learn the basics of photography. In 2013, after moving to Rhode Island I decided that Photography was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, so I enrolled with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh's online division to get my Associates Degree in Digital Photography. It's been hard trying to juggle work, while being a full-time student. I ended up taking a break from school because the job I had at the time was very stressful. But eventually I went back and I am currently working on finishing, to get my degree. The classes I've taken so far have taught me so much. Whether it be on composition, learning how to use the camera with different settings, the elements of art which going along the lines of composition. I've also have learned about the different types of lighting. Whether it be natural lighting from the sun or it be from some type of artificial lighting. Learned how to use an on-camera flash for fill lighting, to working with studio lighting. The studio lighting was covered between two different lighting classes. The first one taught the basics while working with a modeling light. The second one went into more detail and working with strobe lighting. I also learned about light ratios, and the different lighting setups. I learned about manipulating the light to give photos a desired effect. This can be done in many different ways with different tools like a "gobo", or using a snoot on a light to aim the light to highlight a specific area. Then there are diffusers to make the light softer, rather than having direct light which is called hard light. I have even learned about printing and color management. Printing especially for commercial printing, they print using Black, Cyan, Yellow & Magenta. But then there are three other color spaces. These are Red, Green, & Blue also known as sRGB, Adobe RGB (1998), and ProPhoto RGB. These 3 are what the photographer uses. Then on the printing side, the printer has different options to use when printing. The photographer will normally make a print profile for the printer. This is so the color stays the same when going from digital to printed copy. I'm not going to get any deeper into this, but I'm basically trying to say that the colors you see on screen will look the same in printed form besides the paper quality. I am well versed in the editing phase. This is an area that I excel in. I have a keen eye and can edit out undesired things in a shot. Let me put it this way I would be a great hire and you will be impressed with my work and dedication to my craft. I do apologize if I went a little long but I wanted you to get an idea of my skills. I know there are a lot of other things that I know, which I didn't mention. I just love photography and I only want to put out my best work possible.

Thank you for your time,

David Lichty
