I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Photography as well as 8 years of experience as a professional photographer.
I have shot for brands and organizations such as Lollapalooza, JUF, Yahoo News, 1871, We Work, Abbott Laboratories, Wine Channel TV, SocialMedia.Org, AUG the Exchange, Schoology, and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
While earning my degree I participated in 6 different internships in the field of fashion photography, I studied photography abroad in Florence Italy for 6 weeks, and I traveled as a student volunteer for independent study to 2 photography conferences. During the summer's of my college career I worked as a souvenir photographer at Navy Pier, the John Hancock, the Willis Tower, and the Museum of Science and Industry for Photogenic Inc. I also began shooting product photography for the Randolph Street Market while attending Dominican University.
After I earned my degree I began working for 360 REVO, an automotive photography company, where I did detail shots as well as panoramic shots for various high end car dealerships throughout the city. After completing my work there I began working for several smaller photography companies where I did everything from event work to product work.
Now I am more selective as I have honed my skills and I currently focused on event photography for corporate and private clients as well as perfecting my product photography as well.
I am still focusing on perfecting my craft and pursuing my goals by continuing my photography education by traveling to both conferences and high end workshops where I have been taught over the top lighting and retouching techniques as well as advanced marketing and art direction.
I take great pride in my work and have incredible attention to detail. I will do my best to employ these traits while working as your photographer!
I love the freedom of being a freelancer and being my own boss. I love creating completely over the top magazine worthy images for clients.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
My primary focus as a photographer is event photography, specifically corporate event photography. I made these shoots special by using attention and patience to capture people engaging in fun and exciting moments during the event to truly capture the atmosphere of the event.
