A bit about me...

My name is Troy Durrance and I'm from Lancaster, NY.  Yes, you guessed it, I'm the photographer for Troy D Photography. I'm a bit KooKy and little off the wall sometimes, but I'm also very creative and VERY 'outside the box'.  Maybe it goes hand in hand, I'm not sure.  Don't worry though, I'm harmless... unless you count the bad jokes, they can be quite painful.

I'm not ALL business...

Thank you for the opportunity to share my passion with you.  I’m not a large company with only profits in mind.  I’m a photographer.  My passion is getting the best photographs for you, the customer.  That's not to say that I’m not business minded.  I understand deadlines, quotas and fulfilling contracts and commitments.  I have worked in sales and customer service for well over 20 years, so I understand how important it is to do a good job and leave a good, lasting impression.  

Where I'm headed...

As you will see from my portfolio, I have a wide assortment of photos.  I have photographed everything from newborns to weddings to pets and more.  My true love is pet photography.  I am focusing my efforts in that direction.  This doesn't mean I won't do other sessions, it simply means you may see more and more that I am 'specializing' in pet photography. 

Where I've been...

Over the years, I have shot weddings, first communions, senior photos, prom photos, newborns and even maternity photos.  I prefer to sit down with you and get to know you before a photo session, especially if its a "Pet Session".  This allows you to feel more comfortable around me and helps me to get very natural, un-posed shots.

My Style...

 When photographing people, I love using dramatic lighting and going for an edgy look.  Lets face it, this look is not for everyone.  If it simply isn't right for you, I'll be the first to suggest something that is more flattering.  When photographing the pets, I tend to use the lights sparingly.  Some pets are good with flash and some are not, we'll make it work.  My equipment was purchased with portability in mind.  Meaning, I will be glad to pack up my gear and come to you.  This is especially helpful with pets and kids.  Generally, they are more comfortable in a familiar surrounding.  When comes to capturing images, my goal is to work with your ideas and merge them with my creative talents.  I want you to be as much a part of this as possible.
