I love capturing unexpected moments for people as well as brining a small business owners vision to life. Its about making dreams happen or capturing dreams that have come true.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have covered all types of events and shot all kinds of products, what is a unifying factor in all of them has been having patience with the clients to get them to relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera or letting them see various different backgrounds and how they make the product pop and stand out the way they want.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
None at this time, but I have been published in 2 Books.
A fun fact about this photographer
Before I went into photography I was at the University of Hawai'i studying to be a Marine Biologist, but when my counselor said my math skills were too weak I packed my bags and came back the California and started on my path to becoming a professional photographer.
