Keep it real. I’m Bob DiTommaso and I love photography.
I’ve been making photographs professionally during what I refer to as, “the better part of my life.” The funny thing is that I didn’t set out to be professional photographer, but from the first time I picked up a camera I was hooked.
Growing up in Michigan, and as a young man with in an interest in business, I found a rewarding career as an executive at Chrysler. All the while, I was pursuing my photography only as a hobby. Over the years, my hobby grew to semi-pro status. As my skill developed, I was asked to photograph weddings and families I knew, or people who heard about me. And then, a few years ago, my life took a turn that changed everything forever.
My leap of faith
In 2008, my wife, Juliann, and I were faced with literally, a career-changing decision. Both of us had been executives with Chrysler for over twenty years, and we, like many employees at every level, were offered an incentive to take a buyout. We accepted Chrysler’s offer and we began our second careers. With the help and support of Juliann, I have a thriving professional photography business, Get Shot by Bob. I pinch myself every day.
