I love everything about my job! Working with clients and art directors to create something amazing, unique and creative is ideal. Capturing the emotion of a subject of the feeling of the moment.
I've worked a variety of projects from individual portraits to full commercial jobs. Most recently was a project with the Portland Contemporary Ballet capturing headshots and action shots of each of their dancers. I completed the work and style that the art director was looking for and was able to ad a twist and style with the lighting.
