A word from Patty:
I remember developing film at Bergen County Camera when I was in my late teens. I was always so excited to leaf through that little spiral-bound brown notebook full of 4×6 prints. Fast forward many years, and I found myself, once again, drawn to BCC. Shortly after having children, my desire to take better pictures was born and I soon became a regular at the Saturday morning Focus Sessions. I learned SO much going to those sessions and by picking everyone’s brain whenever I could! I think the first digital camera I purchased was a Panasonic point and shoot. After that a used Mark 5 Canon, then a 6D and finally, the 5D Mark III. I love my Canons, but am also having fun with a great little point and shoot I recently purchased. 

I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to turn my passion/hobby into a thriving business and I feel so blessed to be able to call photography my job. The learning never ends … and that is the best part! 
 
Thank you to everyone at BCC for all your time and patience with me. I’m forever grateful.
Patty

A word from Joanne:
My husband, Rich Collins, started attending the Saturday morning Focus Sessions at BCC long before I did. After several years of his gentle coaxing, I finally gave photography and BCC a try! I started out using a pocket point-and-shoot Olympus. BCC taught me so much that I managed to get some amazing images out of my little camera!  After that, I moved on to a Fuji X20, and am currently using my Olympus mirrorless system. I purchase all my cameras and gear at BCC because the team always helps me buy what is right for me and gives me the ongoing support and instruction that has helped me grow as a photographer. I hope you enjoy a few of my images shared here;  most of them were taken on BCC field trips!

A word from Paul:
Pharmacist by trade…photographer by passion. I have had a life long love for NYC and it’s “characters”. Ever since the 60’s when I would tag along with my dad as my guide I have come to love everything the city has to offer.  Check out my Instagram @paulflorio and web site – http://sundayinnewyork.smugmug.com – see you on Sunday in New York! 

For over 25 years Bergen County Camera has become my “hang out” and class room. All my equipment and most of my talent has been learned just by listening to the “PRO’s” at BCC. I’m proud to have just launched my first book of photography called “Sunday in New York” visit my website for full details.
