Welcome to PADPhotography, my name is Peter Danzo, I am a 27 year veteran of the Hackensack NJ Fire Dept where I hold the rank of Deputy Chief, I am a past member of the Ridgefield Pk NJ Vol. Fire Dept, Hose Co.1 and an inactive/exempt member of the Belmar NJ Vol. Fire Dept, H&L Co.1 where I was Chief of Dept in 2005.

I have been involved with photography since I was 14 years old starting with a little 110, upgrading and honing my skills with 35mm and now shooting digital with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and primarily a Canon 24-105 f4L lens as well as a Canon 17-40 f4L and a Canon 70-200 f2.8L. My subject matter not only covers fires and emergencies but also severe weather as well as nature and landscapes.
