Beyond its work staging traditional photo shoots and portraiture, Garden State Photo Studio's team of event photojournalists is dispatched to special occasions to tell their stories. As celebrations such as weddings, sweet sixteens, and bar mitzvahs unfold, photogs follow the belles of the ball, snapping or videotaping a chronology of candid moments with their professional-grade digital cameras and lighting equipment.
It started with the old Minolta XG-9 film camera his father gave him as a kid. It continues today with his high-tech Canon digital camera—Andrew F. Johnston's passion for photography, that is. Andrew's excitement for the art is evident in all of his photo shoots for families, couples, and individuals. He captures exhilarating, memorable moments at his professional studio and on-location around the New York City area.
Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Hans Gonzalez moved to the Big Apple to study portraiture, lighting, and composition at the New York Institute of Photography. When he packed for the journey, Hans made sure to take with him his astute attention to detail and warm personality. Today, it’s those same qualities that enable Hans to capture candid, gone-in-an-instant moments between friends, families, and the man that keeps tossing banana peels in their paths. To ensure those fleeting moments get preserved in proper fashion, Hans and his team shoot everything in high-definition with professional lighting, photo, and video equipment.
