I love when a photo grabs you and pulls you into a different world or time. A good photo doesn't just touch your eyes, it unlocks something deeper. This is an art that requires not just a technical mind, but a creative soul. And the look of excitement, nostalgia and wonder on the faces of clients is one of the most satisfying and rewarding experiences I have known.
Although I have done many different styles of shoots, I primarily enjoy doing events and editorial work, since they often both require making scenes look intimate and candid. You are trying to tell a story of someone's life, and make it compelling.
