I'm an experienced photographer and creative that has a natural ability to bring out the best in people and put them at ease in front of the camera. I like to make shoots fun because laughter brings the best of and most beautiful smiles out of people. I've been told countless times times that I capture energy and essence especially in women. Natural light is my jam and I'm able to adjust quickly in most any lighting situation and work on the fly. I'm been shooting since I was a kid, initially I was self taught but I've continued my education through challenging myself, classes and workshops over the years and I've also mentored other photographers. Photography isn't just a passion for me, it's a part of my purpose.
The connections and the creativity. It's not just the story that I get to tell its the energy exchange that happens during the shoot. It's showing a person a side of themselves that they may not have ever noticed or capturing an inanimate object in a way that gives it life.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done every type of shoot you can imagine but Portraits, Headshots and Personal Branding stand out to me. I love to infused the persons quirks and unique point of difference into the shoot to make them even more relateable to their audiences. I love to tell stories with details and candids. Each is personalized in some way and that puts people at ease..and I get to capture them real them.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I'm not much for awards or honors.. My biggest reward is the look on my clients face when they see what we've created.
