Greetings, I’m Tory Carissimo—a fervent advocate for the art of creation and the power of storytelling. From my earliest recollections, I’ve been captivated by the magic of bringing ideas to life and sharing them with others. It all began in childhood, where I discovered my love for crafting imaginative narratives through the lens of my parents’ video camera. Today, that same passion continues to drive my endeavors, both professionally and personally. As a seasoned software engineer, I’ve had the privilege of designing online platforms that serve and inspire hundreds of thousands. Beyond the confines of code, I find fulfillment in capturing life’s fleeting moments as a dedicated photographer, documenting the beauty of local landscapes, the energy of sporting events, and the pulse of community life. In my role as the 501(c)(3) non-profit director of Overlook Horizon Inc., I’ve embraced the dynamic world of live broadcasting, connecting with audiences worldwide and amassing a collective viewership of over 15 million across various digital platforms. Additionally, I’ve had the honor of sharing my insights and inspirations through public speaking engagements, championing the pursuit of knowledge and the wonders of scientific discovery. This journey isn’t just about what I create—it’s about the connections forged and the stories shared along the way.

Always Searching For The Shot

In my world, beauty isn’t just something you stumble upon—it’s something you actively seek out. Whether it’s the soft hues of a breathtaking sunset or an unconventional angle that unveils a whole new perspective, I thrive on uncovering those precious moments that often go unnoticed. Armed with my trusty camera, I embark on a mission to freeze these fleeting instances in time, allowing us to pause and truly absorb the wonders of our surroundings. What sets me apart? Well, as a licensed FAA Part 107 sUAS Remote Pilot (Drone Pilot), I have the privilege of exploring vistas that are beyond the reach of the human eye, capturing awe-inspiring views that few have the chance to witness firsthand. So, if you ever catch me with my lens in hand, just know that I’m on a quest to immortalize the beauty of our world—one frame at a time.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
“Black and white are the colors of photography. They symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is subjected.”
