My name is Sam Cherubin, I am from Saratoga Springs and currently live in Rochester, NY. I currently work for the NYS Mesonet (NYS Mesonet), which is based at the University at Albany. I maintain and repair remote weather stations across Western NY, and live in Rochester as a home-base. I have a B.S in Meteorology from SUNY Brockport, which is 30 minutes west of Rochester. 

I have been a photographer since about 2014, when I got my first DSLR, which was a small mirrorless Sony camera. At that time, I didn't have much experience with cameras, settings, lighting, etc., and pretty much taught myself over time. I picked up a few small gigs shooting sports photos for my high school's basketball and ice hockey team, as well as football and lacrosse. I also was in charge of the production of the Graduation Ceremony from 2014 to 2019, as well as various sports here and there. 

After I graduated high school in 2016, I went to SUNY Brockport to study meteorology and became part of the Sports Communications Office during my first week at college. From here on out, I developed an incredible skill set for many more sports at the NCAA D3 level, including many I have never photographed before. I started out with another photographer and that was the start for the expansion of the office and it grew from there. After five years on the job for Brockport, I graduated in May 2021 and moved outside to the city later in the year. 

In July 2021, I was offered the field technician job for the NYS Mesonet and started in August, and then moved to Rochester in October to start my remote work, serving western NY and over 50 weather stations. I take many photos on the job and often bring my camera with me to shoot, and sometimes capture rare weather events or sunrise and sunset.
