Behind the Camera

Hello, and thanks for stopping by!

First off, let me introduce myself.  My name is Amado Rivas and I graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a degree in Technical Management.  I've always had a fascination (my wife would probably call it an obsession) with all things aviation.  As a kid I dreamed of being a pilot and making that my career.  Though I don't fly professionally, my head has stayed in the clouds my entire life and I'm constantly looking up when I hear a plane flying over head.

I grew up playing baseball, and with a strong sense of the arts- mainly performing arts.  I played the trumpet from 5th grade all through high school, I was in every drama production in high school, and I was the Choir President my junior and senior years.  What can I say; I enjoyed being in front of a crowd.  After high school I hung it all up and I joined the Navy.  It wasn't until just before my youngest son was born in 2009 that I picked up a camera...a "real" camera and snapped my first photo.  I was hooked!  And now here I am.

I'm not like any other photographer around Kings County.  I specialize in High School Seniors...that's it!  I will shoot other types of sessions, but only on a case-by-case basis.  I pour all of my effort in to making your senior photo shoot the best portrait experience ever!  Your senior year is an exciting and important time in your life, and your senior photos are no different.  Your senior photo shoot is more than just showing up and taking your pictures.  It's about getting to know YOU and making your senior portrait vision a reality.

Email me right here to get started on your senior photo shoot.  I can't wait to hear from you!


See You Soon,
