Hi, I’m Shmuli from Brooklyn NY. By day I’m a mobile UX designer at B&H Photo, but at night and free time I’m a photographer.
I share the same birth city as Piet Mondriaan, a city in the center of Netherlands, Amersfoort. I grew up in a large family where most of my siblings and my parents hold positions in education, but we also have some working in catering and real estate, and then there is me, doing my photography and graphic design.
At the age of 13 I received my first film camera for my Bar-Mitzvah, at first photography did not interest me that much, but that changed over the years, especially when digital photography became more popular. In 2003 I bought my first digital camera, a Canon Powershot A300, and I really started to develop a love to capture a memory that lasts forever. To satisfy the growth in my photography I bought my first DSLR in 2004 (a Rebbel XT), that is since been upgraded to a Canon 50D & 6D, with some additional lenses, the lensBaby among them.
If you don’t see me behind my camera or behind a computer, I’m probably on a bike cruising somewhere around the Big Apple!
