About Dino

nice to meet you!

Its been a long time coming with a lot of tuning and tweaking but I’m proud to announce my new website dinopetrocelliphoto.com and Blog dinopetrocelli.com/blog/ has launched with the help of Elizabeth Delos of Brayton Graphics who did an awesome job capturing exactly what I wanted this site to be. This is a totally different site divided between my wedding and commercial work and will be managed and updated personally by me through my blog which will post to my Facebook and Twitter pages. Friend me, follow me and check the site often for updates.

Contrary to what people may think, due to the amount of commercial work I do, I have no intention of closing the wedding portion of my business. In fact, with the addition of a second shooter, Lori Malone we are stronger than ever. Lori is capturing great candids and creative behind the scenes shots. With Lori and my lighting assistant Kristen Edgar, we are producing great images with unique lighting to make your wedding memories unforgettable with photos. There is no need to spend 5-8 thousand dollars on your wedding photographer. My rates are extremely reasonable and affordable. I pride myself on being a PHOTOGRAPHER not a computer tech. I do basic retouching, enough to make your images look beautiful without making them look computer generated. I work with a great album company unitedalbums.com who use much of my work to showcase their online samples and who are also very affordable.

Contact me to schedule an appointment in the Bridal Room in my studio where you will have a chance to review much of my work. Weddings book approximately a year to a year and a half in advance but dates may still be available so don’t hesitate to contact me.

Whatever your photography needs are, wedding, portrait, head shots, motorcycle, car, boat, product, studio rental, etc…. looking through this site will show you…….. Dino Petrocelli is the photographer you need.

HOW IT ALL STARTED……..

With a love for music and rock concerts, Dino Petrocelli’s passion for photography began at the age of sixteen. Always with a camera in hand, he was asked to shoot a wedding for a friend in 1985 which began his career. After ten years, the business expanded with studio photography where Dino learned everything on his own by reading books, trying his own lighting techniques and a lot of trial and error. Soon he found himself working for independent companies and small ad agencies photographing everything from gloves to car parts, operating rooms and CD covers. In 1997 he was approached to shoot motorcycle parts for a distributor and the covers for their catalog. Since then, not only does he continue to shoot weddings but he has been very involved in shooting for top national motorcycle magazines.

Dino’s clients over the years include: Atlantic British Ltd,. GMP Advertising, Swany Gloves, Grando Gloves, Ambrosino Design, WTEN TV, Bikers Choice, Kaiser Illustration, FLY 92, WPYX 106, Hot Bike magazine, Easyriders magazine, American Iron magazine, numerous brochures, catalogs, billboards and CD covers. He has worked with the Discovery Channel and most recently new clients such as, Paul Jr. Designs, Allstate Insurance, Factory Five Racing, GM High Tech magazine and Corvette Fever Magazine.
