A lot of people will say that the journey is more important than the destination, and they are right...to a degree. With professional photography, it's always about the end-result for me. So, I'd have to say the most satisfying part of my job is taking a great photo and then turning it into an 'OMG' photo; while I certainly love shooting, I think that editing is where my magic really comes to life.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
You name it, I've done it. E-commerce products, weddings, world travel, fine-art archival, landscapes, wildlife, stock photos, etc My approach to taking photographs is that I want you not to just be able to look at what I saw, but to really see it as well, the way that it appeared to me. The camera is the only thing in the world capable of seeing everything from every possible perspective, unlike our fallible and biased human minds. A single photo that is compelling enough can changes hearts and minds quicker than any amount of attempts at verbal convincing.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received

A fun fact about this photographer
When I am not busy taking photos, writing code, or designing: I am absolutely buried in books (I read an average of 30 per year), I volunteer at the Wild Bird Fund (urban wildlife rehabilitation for injured birds), I also love international traveling, apartment gardening, gourmet cooking, and am a bit of a World of Warcraft/Hearthstone addict.
