Russ has been photographing beautiful images for the past twenty years. After graduating with a degree in photography from Salem State University, he went on to assist with some of the best photographers in the Boston area.

With his easy going, laid back personality and his attention to detail, he helps create images that stand out.Russ loves to work with anything that involves color and beauty; whether it's the beauty of photographing a gorgeous interior, a mouth watering culinary creation, an unforgetable view, or a model that exemplifies beauty through fashion.

Russ has spent his extra time working with special events that are close to his heart; for example, the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, because he has Crohn's disease, and also he was the creative director for the Over My Shoulder Foundation which is a non-profit organization that helps with emphasizing the importance of mentoring.
