In accounting for his success, Mr. Bolante credits his 30+ years of experience in the industry. During this time, he has drawn notice in the fields of editorial photography, sports photojournalism, and adventure documentation. Leading a parallel career in the U.S. Army for more than three decades, Mr. Bolante served as an officer and multimedia photojournalist for over three decades, accruing global experience on assignment before retiring as a Colonel with the Washington Army National Guard in 2017.
Adjacent to his current fieldwork, Mr. Bolante has served as a Federal Aviation Administration commercial and instrument rated rotary-wing helicopter pilot since 1990.
