About Me - Phil Gaudio-Monte Photography

My Personal Approach

The Majestic Brooklyn Bridge

The Majestic Brooklyn Bridge

This is a walk I never grow tired of making.

Thank you for visiting my site.  I'm a self taught photographer beginning with 35m/m film then advancing into medium format. I built a darkroom shooting primarily with b&w film and learned film and print development. In time I eventually joined the digital world and never looked back. I truly miss the darkroom for a number of reasons, but it was time to move on. I presently photograph with a Sony mirror-less camera and enjoy it for its small size and comfort in handling. My approach to photography is simple. I shoot as though I'm using film, meaning I don't take dozens of images simply because I can and hope I get a few good ones. I like to make a photograph not take a photograph. I remember the images I've made after I press the shutter,  but not the dozens that I used to take. If I come home with a couple of meaningful images, then I'm satisfied and if not, well I simply enjoyed the day. I hope you enjoy some of my photographs and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to shoot me an email. Warm Regards to all, Phil
