Before this, he was Photo Studio manager, Photographer and Picture editor for private photo studio “Picture This” owned by Image, a Miami based company with the reputation of the largest and most successful photo concessionaire in the cruise industry.
Picture This studio is present in the most tranquil environment of “Central Park” on both Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class ships , Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.

June 16th meeting was our Photography Skills Night. This evening went well with lots of questions answered and more raised for further discussion. Using Off Camera Flash consisted of 3 video lessons downloaded from the internet explaining basic effects and how to achieve greater control. Afterwards members were seen trying to duplicated the lessons using each other as models. If you wish to see the lessons contact Val for the website.
