שלום & سلام, I’m “TK” and no that is not my real name; it’s a call sign from when I served in the Navy.
What does it mean you may ask? Well if I tell you I may have to call in some favors from my friends in DOD ;). (Just kidding!) I’m אליאס יוסף from Syracuse. I was born in China, grew up in Canada, then came to the United States. I’m Jewish and I’m שומר מסורת/Masorti.
As I have said I’m a U.S. Navy veteran, and took up photography after a few trips abroad with my point-and-shoot that yielded some unexpected but stunning photos. Photographer friends of mine said I have an eye for it, and I took their advice, bought a DLSR and that’s how Thirteenth Knight Photography came to be.
