Hi, my name is Michael Schwartzberg (a/k/a "FirePix1075") and I began taking fireground and apparatus photos growing up in New York City. My photos have been published in many newspapers, including the Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Examiner, Orlando Sentinel, Newsday, NY Daily News and on the Associated Press wire. My photos have also been published in many fire service publications (Firehouse magazine, Firehouse.com, Fire Apparatus Journal) and I serve as a Senior Correspondent for 1stResponderNews ( http://www.1strespondernews.com) and as the official department photographer for the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company (http://www.pvfd32.org) I can be reached via email at mikefirepics@gmail.com
