If you're curious about The Traveling Photographer, this page will help. The official grand opening for the legal business named The Traveling Photographer was January 3rd, 1994.
There's me, Bruce Lovelace, the owner of The Traveling Photographer.
I had just left my job with Americana Portraits, a company that specialized in photographing babies and children. I had a strong desire to create both a better experience and a better product for my customers.
People loved the convenience of having a professional portrait photographer come to their home, but I knew I could personalize and improve the enterprise as an individual.
I've been a photographer, at least at some level, since 1970 when I did my first photo shoot. It was in fourth grade during a class trip to the zoo.
The pictures weren't very good, but I was still so excited to get those black and white prints back about a week later. I was intrigued by the ability to see the world around me and capture least a part of that with photography. I thank my father for inspiring me.
He had a darkroom when he was a boy and he set me up with my first black and white darkroom at home. I first printed some of the old negatives from his childhood and several years later my dad and I converted a bathroom in the basement into a large, fully equipped, color darkroom.
We learned a lot together and also shared many frustrations in learning the intricacies of printing in color.
I never imagined at that time that I'd be interested in becoming a professional portrait photographer for a living and enjoy photographing people. I worked for 9 years with that baby photography company until I finally left them in 1993.
The majority of my location photography is done in South Jersey, within 30 miles of Pitman, NJ, in Gloucester County. The Traveling Photographer shoots fairly regularly in Camden County and Burlington County too.
I serve the entire Delaware Valley and I do cross the river occasionally and do photo shoots in Delaware and the areas surrounding Philadelphia, PA area.
The Traveling Photographer also heads "down the shore" for beach photography on Long Beach Island, Brigantine, Ocean City, Ventnor, Margate, Sea Isle City, Strathmere, The Wildwoods, Cape May, and Stone Harbor.
Occasionally, I head north on the NJ turnpike, and take location portraits in Central and North Jersey. If you need a family portrait photographer near you, give me a call and we'll talk about what you want to accomplish.
When I'm not creating portraits, I like hiking or running in the woods, playing tennis, shooting landscape photographing, and running digital photography workshops.
Thank you so much for another wonderful sitting. The photos of Alexis are absolutely beautiful. You went above and beyond the call of duty on the Christmas card.
Just when we think we won't top the previous year you make it happen. Even after 16 years of your lovely photos you still never cease to amaze us with your talents.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
