My name is Glen Viglone. I grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey, and now live in Rhode Island.
My passion for photography began in my teenage years using cameras with 135mm, 126mm and 110mm film, to get both prints and slides – remember? My first 135mm reflex camera was the Canon G-III QL, which I loved and still have today. It was at this point I began to develop and print B&W film (“rolling my own” cartridges at a cost of 2 cents per shot). I still remember the excitement as my images materialized in the developing trays.When I got married and started a family, my darkroom equipment went into a large box and stored in the basement, where it remained for many years. I kept shooting and bought my first SLR, the Olympus OM2, along with an assortment of Zuiko lenses. I also still have these today, along with a later acquired OM1. I eventually decided to donate all my dark room equipment to a local high school photography club, hoping it would also help spark their excitement! Today, I shoot Nikon. I started with both the D80 and D90 cameras along with several DX lenses. I loved these great cameras. But soon it was time, and I sold everything and moved up to my first full frame DSLR, the Nikon D800. I invested in several great FX zoom and prime lenses.
I have asked myself if I have a photographic niche and concluded I do not need one. I just like shooting and capturing quality images, while instinctively knowing the technical end. My wife and I enjoy traveling, which allows me the opportunity of capturing images of places and people. I also shoot weddings, bridal and baby showers, corporate events, architectural projects and family portraitures, which are a lot of fun!
People told me they never saw anything I shoot and this is one reason for this website. The other is showcasing images which are special to me.
