So here it is gang, my little portrait studio in Historic Corolla Village in Corolla OBX

It’s just a stones throw from the Currituck Lighthouse and directly behind the bookstore, which everyone who has been to Corolla knows about, but just in case you need directions, my address is 1130-D Corolla Village Road, Corolla, N.C. 27927

Stop by to say hi anytime, the hours are by appointment, but if the door is open , c’mon in!

A Bit of Corolla Info

Although Corolla has gained national attention as one of America’s best-secluded beaches, Corolla still retains its small beach-town charm that attracted Outer Banks visitors in the first place. For vacationing families who want plenty of sand to spread out on, but would like to still enjoy the amenities of a resort beach community, Corolla is an ideal vacation destination.

Our small-town beach community combines all the best elements of a five-star resort vacation, while still encompassing that laid-back Outer Banks style that embraces the best beach life. With minimal development but lots of amenities, Corolla is perfect for those who want to get away from it all, but still enjoy all the best diningshopping, water sports, and amenities that the Outer Banks has to offer.

Corolla is known for its miles of beaches, as well as its array of restaurants, shops, and historic attractions. Corolla is also the home of several popular Outer Banks attractions, including the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, the Whalehead Club, the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education, and the Wild Horse Museum.

Corolla is located in the northernmost region of the Outer Banks, just north of the town of Duck, and just south of the 4WD beaches of Carova. It is part of Currituck County and is accessible via North CrolinaHighway 12 North.

Here, on the northern tip of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, you can explore miles of windswept remote beaches, the legendary Corolla wild horses, and many iconic historical sites.

Oh, and one last thing, it’s “Cor-rah-la”, not “Cuh-roll-uh”

In the grand scheme of things, this is probably the least important, but it’s worth noting that the pronunciation is a bit different than what it may look like at face value. It may be spelled the same as the popular Toyota sedan, but locals and frequent visitors know it’s a bit different.

20 years as a Corolla family photographer, wow!

hey guys, just got back to the beach the other day and have to say that I’m pretty psyched for the 2023 season and then I realized that this is going to be my twentieth full time season as a family photographer here in Corolla, crazy I know, 20 years, and then it hit me that this is also my 45th year as a self employed full time professional photographer!

It all started in 1978 as a one person operation and over the years grew into a group of three studios in New Jersey named The Image Maker, located in Berkeley heights, Mendham and Princeton, we became the premier portrait studio in the New Jersey New York metropolitan area. Then it was time to for me to move on, and after that business was sold in 2003 I went back to being a one man band, and here I am sitting at my desk in Corolla OBX with the best summer job a guy could ever hope for!

till next time!

Gorgeous Family Group Portraits!

That’s one of the main reasons my clients hire me to be their Outer Banks family photographer………..beautifully crafted organic family group portraits……..done right…….every time!

My bespoke family portraits are created individually for each family by me, there are no “team” or “associate” photographers. Creating beautiful family portraits properly takes many, many years experience ( I’ve been working with families for over 35 years! ).

Don’t trust your families memories to just anyone…… very careful when selecting your Outer Banks family photographer…….make sure that they show plenty of family portraits and not just cute little kids on the beach……….and make sure that they show more large family group portraits than weddings (most “wedding photographers” are not good portrait photographers ).

Many times this is the only time entire families are able to get together for several years, and they want to commemorate this important occasion with a special portrait, and they want it done right!

My clients trust me with their families……..and have………for over 35 years!

after all, isn’t family what’s it’s all about?

Corolla Family Photographer



Classic Family Portraits: A Timeless Keepsake

Family portraits have been a tradition for centuries, capturing memories and preserving them for generations to come. These portraits showcase the unique dynamic of your family, depicting your love, laughter, and connection with one another. While many families have countless candid and posed photographs, there is something truly special about a professionally taken family portrait.

As a professional Corolla family photographer I know that there is no “perfect” time to capture a portrait of your family. It could be when your children are young and growing up, when they leave the nest and start their own families, or when your family is all together for a special occasion. Whatever the reason, a family portrait is an investment that you will never regret making. The portrait will serve as a reminder of the love and joy that your family shares, and will be treasured for years to come.

A classic family portrait is a priceless keepsake that will never go out of style. It is a beautiful reminder of the bond that you share with your loved ones, and can be displayed proudly in your home or office. The portrait can be used as a cherished gift for those you love, or passed down to future generations as a piece of family history.

Hire a “real” Corolla Family Photographer

To ensure the best results, it’s important to hire or recommend an experienced professional Outer Banks Family  photographer (luckily, I happen to know one ◡̈). Simply having a website and a better camera than yours doesn’t necessarily qualify someone for the job. For instance, the other evening in Corolla, I captured this stunning image that is now being transformed into a fully retouched, custom-framed canvas wall portrait. Unlike many other “fauxtographers,” I don’t just deliver unfinished digital files that might get lost on a hard drive somewhere. Instead, my goal is to provide you with a beautiful finished product that you can proudly display and enjoy on your wall.

Look at the work of others, and I think that you will you will see the difference .

These are timeless classic portraits- not just glorified snapshots, and I love creating them for my clients.

And they are done right every  time!

………and of all the Outer Banks Family Photographers, I am the only one certified as a “Master Photographer” by the Professional Photographers Association Of America!

Lots of images of large, medium and small family groups on and off the beach in New Jersey and Corolla and Duck and the entire Outer Banks of North Carolina. There are also many images of sunrises, sunsets and surfing photos in the Outer Banks, along with a mix of dog and pet photography, business portraits and headshots from sessions in New York City and all over New Jersey. Lots of fun photos from my journey.
