About Momma Duke

mommathumb

  Margaret Nicosia “AKA” Momma Duke’s is the owner of RockATude Photography and is a freelance professional. Her love of music and art from the time she was an infant has lead her to put all her talents into one business.

Every one of her projects have always been structured to the clients needs and tastes, not her own.  She may add creative suggestions, but ultimately the client will get what they are looking for.  Her photography work, although digital, still brings out her “artsy” side, and most of her photos capture her subjects in a candid way.

She will add her special touch to posed shots, but enjoys when her subject does not sense her presence during a shoot. She enjoys meeting other professionals and starting her own trends.
Her additional skills include writing (presently for Full Throttle NYNE Magazine), Internet Marketing, and event coordinating.
She is available for photography shoots from live rock shows to corporate events as well as portrait shots for personal or commercial use. She’s also second camera for Weddings and other formal events, working with Long Island’s Affordable Wedding Photograher Chris of As You Wish Photography. Our Pricing is very affordable!

About Dalila Kriheli

dalilathm

My name is Dalila Kriheli and I own rockstarpix.com.  I’m a NY based concert photographer.

Of course it started out innocently enough by taking a disposable camera to a show, then getting a “real” camera – and just shooting all night long.  This was more than a hobby for me and I realized that this was my calling.  I always wanted to be in the Music Business one way or the other.  As people would see my picture and comment on them (almost all positive feedback) I would hear time and time again that “You should do this for a living.”  I’m still going strong and loving it.

I have made some wonderful contacts in this industry and even more wonderful friends – It’s my absolute true love to shoot my friends live!

That is really all in a nutshell – There are reasons why I do what I do, and what led me to this, and if and when you meet me, you will understand.  As I’m charging up the batteries, and clearing up space on my CompactFlash cards, I leave you with this statement:  LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH PASSION!  I know I am.

Throughout my years in the entertainment industry, I have been most fortunate to meet the most passionate musicians, tour managers, models, rockers…. I am living a dream – Everybody that has seen me smile –> Thank you for bringing it to me.  I am truly humbled by all the positive energy that surrounds me.

Thank you for taking your precious time out to read about me!
