camera Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, Canon EOS 600D (Rebel T3i)

Hello, I am a San Francisco Bay Area based Editorial, Portrait, Lifestyle, and Food/Bev Photographer. I spent five years in NYC getting my skills honed into the style and fashion from the big apple. Originally, from San Francisco area, I am back to Bay Area, and excited to share some of my NY style with the SF vibes. I have extensive work with commercial - both marketing campaigns and product - as well as food and beverage. My passion comes from traveling and capturing moments, things, places I wanted people to see even if they were not there. I like to show up ready to go and with energy to help clients through the process. There is nothing more unnerving for clients than having their business budgets and marketing budgets rely upon my work. Realizing this, I engage frequently and communicate thoroughly with the teams on shoots and projects. Highlights of my photography experience and skills: 1. Versatile in working with multiple creative teams and have extensive experience with Art and Creative Directors as well as Marketing executives. 2. Worked with & developed large teams with MUA, assistants, and models. 3. Have expertise in photo editing for clients within Lightroom and Photoshop. Ability to use Indesign as well for layouts and other creative additions to projects.

I create unique experiences for my subject, with a focus on fashion flair. My shooting style uses glamour techniques that make your images stand out from any you've had before. Your shape, size and age — none of that matters, as this will be your day to be pampered and feel amazing. The pre-planning is just as important to me as the actual shoot day. We’ll build a mood board together and go over all the details so that we both have a clear idea of what to expect. I will be my own goofy happy self on the day of our shoot and will guide you through various poses to help you get the most natural "you" look.

How did you get started with photography

I began my photographic journey while studying abroad in Amsterdam in 2008. I had purchased my first dSLR for the trip and found myself behind the viewfinder most of the time instead of practicing music (the reason I was there).

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and forming a bond between me and my subjects, even if it's only for a brief time. It's challenging to photograph people you don't know in a way that makes your subject look honest and true. There's a level of trust that must be achieved before this can happen, and I enjoy creating that relationship. That's what I strive to do with my portraits and whenever photographing people.

What are some of your favorite places in San Francisco to take photographs?

There are so many great places in San Francisco to photograph. Some of my favorites include: Marshall's Beach, Crissy Field, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, North Beach, Fort Mason, and many other parks and neighborhoods that dot the SF landscape.
