look with your eyes, see through mine!

Once upon a time in the land of steel and bridges, there was an engineer.  Earning a mechanical engineering degree in 2007 from Carnegie Mellon University, one the best engineering schools in the country, and landing a job at home in Pittsburgh just wasn't enough.  Our engineer was unhappy, and as you've probably guessed, I was that unhappy engineer.  Luckily, the rest of our little tale is a happy one.

Hi, I'm JP Diroll, and all my life I've been a visual person, fascinated by wildlife photos specifically.  But I needed to make my own so with the extra scratch I had in my pocket from that engineering gig, I bought my first digital camera, also in 2007.  It was a sweet little Nikon D50 with a whopping 6.1 megapixels.  I had NO clue how to use the thing but buying that camera was the smartest dumb thing I've ever done.

Gone were the days of looking at someone else's photos.  The creative process immediately began to consume me and I was no longer taking photos, I was creating art.  What I knew all along had finally been confirmed:  I was never an engineer.  I was an artist, and a good one!  So I took a leap of faith in 2013.  No more 9-5.  No more steady paycheck.  Just a camera, a vision, and the determination (and support - thank you Alyssa!) to pursue a dream.

Fast forward to today and the dream is a reality.  As a full time professional photographer, I'm happier than ever.  Here in the city I love, I get to share my journey and art, showing YOU the city you love too, but through my eyes.  And I GUARANTEE, you're going to LOVE what you see!
