I grew up in the emergency services as a fifth generation firefighter in Berwyn, Pa. I grew to enjoy photography and combined it with my love for Fire and Rescue. I started this site some 15 years ago, and now get to share it again.
I understand today's liability issues and won't go where I am not supposed to. I will do my best to respect the home owners and victims. I never want to put any of us in a bad light, so unless you let me in, I won't push it like some. I won't post photos of exposed deceased either. That is just in bad taste. I will help take photos of scenes if requested while I am there, and will hold any pictures requested not to be published for the investigation or if sensitive in nature.
These photos are of you and for you, as much as it is for me. So, please feel free to use these photos for your fire company websites and social media, all I ask is that I receive photo credits.
News organizations MUST contact me before using my photos. I really don't want to have to watermark everything, as the clean photo looks much better. But the fact is I don;t make any money out of this so don't expect me to let others to do so with my work.
