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.

How did you get started with photography

I initially became interested in photography as an underwater tour guide working both in the Monterey Bay, and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

What do you love about your job?

I love the collaborative aspect, hashing out the details with a client and then turning it into a photograph. Every shoot is basically a different adventure !

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

I am happy shooting in a busy food district, down an alley, and am equally happy setting up a portable studio in a high-rise with window light. I also have been invited to shoot at some great houses and corporate spaces.
