He has received awards from Professional Photographers of America and Professional Photographers of West Virginia for his work. Romano published “History of Webster County High School – 1974-2015,” and pictorials for Richwood County high school in West Virginia. He has photographed tens of thousands of models and will be showing the class trade secrets of lighting, posing and selling pictures.
