    BROOKLYN, NY, February 21, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Duane Knight has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Driven to help grieving families HEAL through photography, Mr. Knight presently excels as the chief executive officer of Your Legacy Photography. Likewise, he is the founder and chief executive officer of Damascus Road Enterprises, LLC, and their ground-breaking work in the Gospel music industry. Alongside his work, Mr. Knight contributed to his community for 25 years as a volunteer photographer with The Love Express Christian Newspaper.

An expert in his field, Mr. Knight holds a Bachelor of Arts in Cartooning and Animation from the High School of Art and Design, which he earned in 1979. Subsequently, he received a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies and Art from Brooklyn College, a Master of Arts in Photography from Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus, and a business plan Certificate through the Workshop in Business Opportunities.

While his career has been filled with highlights, he takes the most pride in the reactions he receives from grieving families healing through his photography. As he puts it, he helps families remember most of what they've forgotten about the funeral service, and all of what they never saw, referring to the joy and love that takes place during the funeral, intermingled with the grief. In the coming years, Mr. Knight intends to become the premier funeral photographer in the United States, continue publishing photography books, and establish his own art of funeral photography magazine.
