Customer Spotlight – Paul Florio

Welcome to a new monthly addition to our In Focus e-newsletter: The Bergen County Camera Customer Spotlight. Monthly, we’ll feature a customer who’s made an impression on us. They might have grown in their understanding of photography, gained a mastery of the craft and/or become a strong advocate  of our way of doing business in the world of photography. During the next month you will see Paul’s images displayed on our digital signs in store, in our emails, blog posts and social media. We hope you both enjoy and are inspired by this new addition to In Focus and look forward to your comments and suggestions. 
Paul Florio, is the first customer profiled in this new feature. Please enjoy a few of Paul’s images in the gallery below along with links to view even more of his photography.

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.
