I have to wish my great friend Robert Cox a very Happy Birthday and just take a moment to publicly thank him for being the best critic and mentor that I've come to be close with ~ ever, and I just want to get it out there. Many years ago, I was asked to cover an event or two for Talk of the Sound. That later led to me shooting The Best of Westchester, many press conferences, sports and boxing events..., The Iona mens Basketball championships, covered events with NRPD, NRFD, The NR Veterans, NRLL, New Ro Cheer, I've shot and met NASA's Ron Garan, The NY Yankees, Mariano Rivera, Ray Rice, The NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade, all the NR Parades, Memorial Day Celebrations, published numerous feature stories, recently shot two Daily News Golden Gloves bouts and I have now become a liked contributor and regular Photographer with Talk of The Sound. (I know I'm leaving things out) But I have given my all, and tried to say yes to everything knowing that I live and breathe taking pictures and swore some day...I would be doing what I love for the rest of my life. Because I was offered a platform to have my work public and put in some good ole' American hard work to get better at my craft, life has brought me amazing experiences. I need to make it clear, that had it not been for this one person, my good friend Bob, having faith in me that I could do it ~ I wouldn't be able to write this to tell him how much I appreciate him ( and his beautiful family that I love ♥ )
So, Robert Cox ~ Happy Birthday and THANK YOU
All my best, TOTS Photographer, Jen Parente
