After spending more than half of my life in New Orleans, I have returned to my roots -- Baton Rouge. And with me, I have brought my love of photography. The camera has always been another instrument in helping to describe not only what is seen, but also what is felt. My passion for photography arrived about the same time the first of my four children did -- I wanted to capture their growth and emotions along the way... not always to their approval. Over the last decade, the hobby has evolved, much to the credit of New Orleans photographer, Luke Ducote. After studying under Ducote, who has over 26 years experience as a photographer for the Times Picayune, and even better experience in teaching the art of photography, the camera has become a more "user-friendly" tool for me.
I enjoy many types of photography, everything from the adrenaline rush and emotions of weddings, to more recently, the landscapes and details of the world around us. In early 2016, one of my images was published in South Louisiana's Country Roads Magazine. The accompanied article included:
"Crifasi stays vigilant for the hidden stories of South Louisiana's landscapes, but he makes frequent use of his passport, too, thanks to his wife Terri's work in travel. 'She's taken me some places I never thought I'd see,' he said. The couple has been as far south as the Antarctic Peninsula and as far east as Dubai; abroad, they work in tandem to make images. 'I know the lighting and the composition I want, and she's great with the details,' said Crifasi, who credits his wife with researching optimum vantage points for the visions in his mind's eye. 'To us, it's like a hunting expedition...'" April, 2016 Country Roads Magazine
