My professional career spans several decades in network television production...CBS, NBC, ABC, and everyone in between...

I worked as a Knicks and Rangers Pre and Post Game Video Editor at Madison Square Garden for 15 seasons...

Along the way, I've met many talented people who were more than happy to share their knowledge and passion for photography with me.  Today, I share that with you...

If you walk away from my website with a smile on your face, I'd be happy...

If you walk away feeling inspired, I'd be happy...

If you walk away the new owner of one of my pieces...we'd BOTH be happy!

Your thoughts and comments are always welcome; feel free to leave them in the guestbook; it's open 24 hours a day...

I can be reached through the contact page right here on my website, and also at donnavalentiphotography@gmail.com.

Thank you, and enjoy!
