I've had a passion for creative arts ever since I was a child. At an early age, I would pick up my saxophone and try my best to jam out with my father and uncle . Throughout my teenage years, I was arranging and producing music as a hobby. My interest in photography peaked during my senior year at George Mason University (GMU), while I was taking a photography course. I was amazed and fell in love with the process of being able to capture human expressions and emotions down to the millisecond. After graduating from GMU with a bachelor in Information Systems & Operations Management, I decided to expand my knowledge in the art of photography through books, attending seminars and shadowing local professional photographers at weddings and portrait sessions.
I love interacting with new people at shoots. It's always the best part of the shoot for me. I just love hearing people's stories and knowing that we all have our own unique journey. Understanding their vision and seeing the joy on their face when I bring their vision to life....priceless
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done weddings and many lifestyle portraits. One thing that i really love doing when i do portraits is really try to understand the model's personality as i'm shooting them. I'll pose them based on their personality so that way every pose and picture has a hint of their personality in it. Same thing when i do weddings. I'll consult with the bride and groom a couple of times before the wedding. Once i have an idea of how they are, on the wedding day I have different poses and concept that fits their personality.
