Torfi was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Photography has been a big part of Torfi’s life since the age of 12 when his entire summer income was spent on a Olympus OM2 camera, soon to be followed by a darkroom rigged up in the guest bathroom of his parents house. Since photographing his first US national advertising campaign on large format film over 15 years ago, Torfi’s worldwide clients have taken him across oceans, over mountains and through hell and high waters in search for amazing imagery utilizing Torfi’s unique style and knowledge along with the latest equipment and technology available.
