Growing up in New Jersey I’ve always owned a camera. I’d load my roll of film and start spinning until the roll is in and then I’d shoot. But things were about to change. I purchased my first digital camera. A Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P71, a full 3.2-megapixel camera that was smaller than the palm of my hands.
Anxious and excited; I took it to the top of Garret Mountain and began shooting. Being able to capture an image and see it instantly on the back end of the camera made me fall in love with photography all over again.
Carrying this little camera around with me everywhere I went, I began to notice that most of my photos were leaning towards the landscapes near my home.
After years of shooting and the explosion of Social Media, I became determined to make photography my life.
I set out a one-year goal to make this happen. I worked really hard trying to figure a way to leave my job and have the field of photography be my main source of income.
Today I am happy to say that I am a full-time Photographer and Video Director at TG Media Productions (https://tgmproductions.com) pushing the limits with other creatives. My name is Ihsan and I am known as TG (The Guy).
