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 style is laid-back and photojournalistic, so I try to stay out of the way of the event/subject as much as possible and allow its natural essence to shine on its own. I want you to feel comfortable, relaxed, and totally yourself- so my approach is very unobtrusive, "in the background", and rather gentle. I do my best not to rely on awkward, and unnatural posing or in putting you 'on the spot'; instead I offer basic, simple suggestions to help show you off in the best possible light. Photoshoots don't have to be dramatic, nerve-wracking experiences...they can (and should be) easy-going, pleasant, and fun!

A fun fact about this photographer
When I am not busy taking or editing photos, I am absolutely buried in books, volunteering at the Wild Bird Fund (urban wildlife rehabilitation for injured birds), traveling, cooking, gardening, or playing Hearthstone.
