I love using technology to help someone realize their vision. I do love to capture light and life in my own personal projects when I travel but when I work with clients, I feel as though I am helping them communicate something visually that they cannot articulate themselves. It's a thrill when can exceed a client's expectations and hear them say "that's better than I imagined!"
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done tens of thousands of shoots (I like to keep busy), so it's hard to remember them all. Something I always like to do when I shoot is have a dialogue with the client over the images, and talk about what are some ways we can use the camera to capture the subject best. It's always great to discuss options with a client and make sure they are getting exactly what they need.

A fun fact about this photographer
I actually started doing photography because I was playing in a band that had enough success that we toured internationally, and the photography job came to me at the end of a search for a job that would let me leave town every now and then. One night it just clicked that I enjoyed taking photos more than the music that brought me to it, so I left the band and focused all my time on photography!
