About Us

                       My name is Stephen McCloskey, I’m currently a disabled veteran who struggles with post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, facial nerve damage & partial blindness of my left eye. I was introduced to photography through the Department of Veteran Affairs & my wife for photo therapy to help me relieve  anxiety & stress through photography. The Department of Veteran Affairs put me through the photography certification program and with the help of my family & friends I was able to complete this course to become a certified photographer. Photo therapy was also introduced to me to volunteer for events through the Wounded Warrior Project & STOP 22 A DAY to be able to assist & support other veterans & to capture their memories. I was never into photography before its introduction and as of  2012, I have been since! Photography has lifted me up and has given me another goal in life outside of my family.

 

Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.
