I fell into photography 4 years ago as I was published while living abroad in Indonesia. I had 'semi-retired' after selling my ownership in a my family's restaurant.I got my start shooting our menu items and staff there. Including skills sets with staff and clients, styling food and people. I think because of my background in a high traffic/profile resatraunt dealing with dynamic public relations my photography career has had a faster arc than usual. I do come from a creative background and have worked rewriting scripts. New endeavors do not make me nervous and I take it as a personal growth method when I can put new clients or people at ease......the karma helps too
New experiences, people and concepts each time. I thrive on thinking around corners or problems.Unexpectedly, I love that I still work with a majority of my clients and/or have continued relationships with them. I missed that about the restaurant and it gives me a sense of community when I shoot repeatedly for clients and their passions/businesses
Fashion, food, portraiture + full websites because it's varied and they need a versatile photographer. But really I've been shooting everything....
I have about 20 awards from pro photographer/judges on Viewbug.com
I'm a bit of an auto-didact with everything I aspire to learn.
