I love the creative trouble shooting that comes with photography and the satisfying task of creating a beautiful composition with a mix of form, light, color and perspective.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done all sorts of shoots. Lately the majority of my shoots have been food photography. The way I make them spacial is by using external flash to achieve bright soft natural looking light. By doing this I am able to have full control over the look of the subject no matter what light environment I am in.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I won first place in a juried university gallery art exhibition for all mediums for a three image surreal complex photo montage series. I also got third place in an international college photography competition put on by photography forum magazine.
