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 in Kings County.  I'm a portrait photography...that's it!  I specialize in high school seniors and family portraits as well headshots.  I pour all of my effort in to making your photo shoot the best portrait experience ever- to draw out your genuine expressions and give you the best portraits and headshots you've ever had!  Your photo shoot is more than just showing up and taking your pictures.  It's about getting to know YOU and making your portrait vision a reality!

See You Soon,
