My name is Crystal Kopec. I grew up in Dundee in the heart of New York State's Finger Lakes, where I attended Dundee Central School, graduating in 2013. During my junior and senior years in high school I pursued a course in graphics media production at Finger Lakes Technical and Career Center at the regional BOCES complex in Flint, New York. At graduation I received awards as “Most Professional” student and the student with “Most School Spirit” in the program. I was also named “Top of the Trade” student of the month eleven out of a possible twenty times during the course of the two-year program. Among the many projects I was involved in at FLTCC, I created and produced the very first FLTCC yearbook ever during my senior year. I have recently graduated from Alfred State College and received an associate degree in business management for the spring term in 2015 and received my bachelor's degree in business administration for the spring term in 2017.
In August 2018, my Fiance and I bought a house together! I currently live in Lake Luzerne, NY, which is located in the Adirondacks. I do travel back and forth from my house to the Finger Lakes. If you would like to schedule a session, please feel free to head on over to the contact information and shoot me message. (:
I have had a love for photography since I was a little girl - perhaps inspired by my grandfather, who was constantly taking pictures of my younger brother and me as we were growing up. After deciding to pursue my interest in photography more seriously, I was most fortunate to discover that the local regional BOCES facility offered the program in digital media production which, of course, included instruction in the art and science of photography. I was doubly fortunate to have Mr. Bruce Pease as my instructor in the program. He was a great teacher and mentor who taught me a great deal - including teaching me how best to learn from my own mistakes.
Don't be surprised if you see me bubbling over with enthusiasm when I am in the process of taking photographs. It is still a thrill whenever I manage to capture a moment in time that someone might treasure forever. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients' reactions as they preview the pictures I have just taken. While working I meet so many strangers who soon become friends. I hope I can satisfy your own requirements with my photography and graphic design skills, and if I cannot offer exactly what you are seeking, I am sure I can point you in the right direction to find the answer to your particular needs..
