Life is fleeting, and there's nothing more important to me then capturing those special moments in peoples lives. To see the look on their faces as they reminisce over old photos is why I do what I do, because one day, those photos will be by me. Art and beauty is what we live for, and I wholesomely believe that capturing people, in a personalized way, is one of the most important roles I could have. Talent; family; surprise proposals; intimate moments. The greatest gift I could give anyone is capturing a photo of how it felt to be there.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I strongly believe in having rapport with my subjects, to allow for a comfortable environment for them to be themselves. All of a sudden, they're laughing in a relaxed pose and have completely forgotten about the camera. That's when the magic starts to happen. I've found that this is a brilliant way to shoot any one on one headshot, lifestyle or fashion. People tend to love the results of my work, as they're captured in a way that best depicts who they really are.
