Gene is a self-trained photographer who started out in 2005 as a nightclub/event photographer. In 2006, he took an extended break from shooting in nightclubs in general, but has returned to photographing small venue/more intimate concerts in Tacoma, WA. He has also branched out into portraiture and weddings as well, officially starting a business in October of 2010. His approach to photography is along the lines of art and photojournalism, however, he doesn't shy away from standard portraiture.
Photography is not the money-maker as of today, so Gene is also an IT Professional with experience that goes back to 1999 and continues to work a full-time day job as a Senior Systems Administrator in Tacoma. He also has a degree in Graphic Design, and often does design work mostly as a hobby, however is currently working with the band Blue Helix on some upcoming promotional work.
