I love being able to give life to ideas. Having the opportunity to not only be exposed to the ideas and creations of brilliant individuals, but to also be apart of creating a visual narrative for each idea is what drives me to provide the best service possible for my client. I also enjoy how photography has made me into a better spectator and participator in life. Photography also feels like a type of meditation for me. It requires a certain amount of "awareness" that challenges me to pay more attention to what I see, what I don't see, and what I feel in order to create an ideal image. I absolutely love the fact that my job has given me skills that allow me to enjoy life in a different way.
I enjoy doing lifestyle portraits and environmental portraits the most. Its the personal and flexible aspect of these types of shoots that make them unique to me. Usually there is a certain amount of bonding done between the client and I prior to the actual shoot, whether its discussing their vision or expectations, scouting locations, or just chatting in order to get a feel for their personality. I have genuine desire to get to know my subjects during these shoots. I leave feeling like it wasn't just a business transaction, but an actual bonding experience with another human being.
I have not yet received any awards for my photography.
I initially majored in Anthropology, however I switched to photography 2 years into the program. Soon, I will be going back to school and finish my degree in anthropology. I hope to one day combine my love of photography and anthropology and pursue my dream to be a photographer for National Geographic or The Smithsonian Magazine.
