Here is a word from Greg Koch:
Growing up in New Jersey, I have always been passionate about the outdoors. I spent countless hours as a kid exploring the woods in my family’s backyard, and even more time hiking and fishing in the Adirondack Mountains. My love of the outdoors can often be seen in the images I create.
I received my first camera when I was a freshman in high school. It was my Mom’s 35mm Cannon AE-1 Program, and an exceptional camera with which to learn the basics of photography. Using film and being limited to 36 shots really taught me the importance of slowing down to make sure everything was in frame exactly how I wanted it to be before taking the shot.
In college I made the switch to digital photography and spent some time living in Florence, Italy where I continued to study photography. After graduating college, I worked in various financial roles in New York City while pursuing photography as a hobby. I now work full-time as a photographer in the Northeast, and I am always available to travel!
The work I am currently doing includes capturing the fly-fishing scene in the Northeast, landscapes from my travels, engagement and wedding proposals, and portraits of people I meet along the way. When not working, I can be found fishing, hiking, hunting, camping and snowboarding.
Bergen County Camera has been extremely beneficial over the years, whether it be answering the many questions I have about a lens before purchasing it, or having a 24×36 photograph printed and framed on short notice, BCC has always been there to help me out. Every person I’ve worked with at BCC has been extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about photography. Over the years I’ve built a great relationship with both Bob and Jeremy, who offer some of the best customer support imaginable. When making a large purchase like a new lens, it’s great to be able to sit and chat with them about the product and leave the store knowing I made a great choice. I cannot imagine going anywhere else for my photography needs.
