I love meeting people and working with creative teams to ultimately create a photographic series that speaks volumes about my client's brand.
By starting my career in the magazine industry, I was thrown into many different shooting scenarios, that of which, were sometimes very challenging. I have photographed everything from portraits to weddings to product over those years. My technique to making each shoot unique and special is to really dive into the mental pre-planning and fully understand the client's uses, desires, and stylistic predispositions. I consider how we can make these specific photos stand out, while maintaining the brand's message.
My clients enjoy working with me and thats good enough for me!
I have been swimming competitively for 16 years, listen to metal and punk music, and live on a horse ranch in the city of Los Angeles with my two senior rescue horses, Annie and Pistol. That's three...whoops!
