I am a passionate photographer. I knew from the very beginning that I had found my calling. When it comes to Real Estate photography I enjoy to help the Agent and the seller to highlight the home to stand out to get the maximum exposure. The same thing with other forms of advertising. It is about capturing something in a way that makes people see it. A lot of times that means shooting around flaws in a creative way to still make space or subject look as good as possible.
The photography that I enjoy the most is Fine Art photography, Dog portrait photography, and Flower photography. When it comes to fine art photography it is about me and the camera taking the time to see and lift out a portion of something, for me it often something old. I have traveled alot in my job and I used to go out looking for old barns, rusty cars, or old motels for example. Dogs, children and flowers are very special to me for the connection I feel as a photographer. I think it has to do with the purity and essence of these subject that makes me feel very happy.
