I have been shooting portraits for a long time, started with natural light and I have mostly been using flashes and natural light, sometimes a reflector. I have been working on purchasing gear all throughout my career as well as working full time. I have started with a canon model camera and switched to sony because of mobility and end result with editing, it's way more versatile. I have a few classes in photography under my belt but I am mostly self taught. I started real estate photography 2 years ago alongside matterport and I have lots of experience shooting interior and exteriors of beautiful homes throughout the bay area. I have my own gear and I know how to use it, I bracket well, expose well, and I always pay attention to angles and details.
I really enjoy storytelling out of every aspect of the work, next to editing (second to first). Storytelling in direct images is easy, where you get to be creative is with the symbolism through images with the environment or something that is relatable. Its like music videos (which input a lot of symbolism).
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I did one portrait shoot for a college grad. I really enjoyed it because I used moving props to enhance the photography...! I used a champagne bottle as well as some confetti to blow while shooting a continuous shutter. I also did something similar while the champagne bottle was shaken a bit and popped!

A fun fact about this photographer
I am a music video director and I plan on creating independent films soon to hopefully get me into a film school scholarship. I also want to direct and be hired by studios local and in Los Angeles.
