I love seeing the connection between a business and their customers. Creating a product is hard enough already, and when a customer is confused about the product it doesn't do anything for my client. So I help create content that helps bridge that gap, to help educate the customer beyond just the product, but also about the industry of the product.
When photographing inside a business, I specifically try to create content that is true to the customer's experience. I've heard so many stories about food photography being staged, and so have their customers, so I wanted to make sure that the experience is genuine. The best part about this is having multiple plates of food to eat after the photo shoot. I would occasionally use a long lens to capture detail shots of actual customers eating the food without disturbing the customers.
I haven't submitted any photographs for any awards or honors and have been recognized for my work specifically by any reputable sources.
I grew up in love with computers so naturally, I went to school for software engineering but eventually dropped out. I started playing around with video during this time, but never had a still camera until I bought my first camera three years later.
