camera Sony A7R II, Nikon D750

I've had a passion for creative arts ever since I was a child. At an early age, I would pick up my saxophone and try my best to jam out with my father and uncle . Throughout my teenage years, I was arranging and producing music as a hobby. My interest in photography peaked during my senior year at George Mason University (GMU), while I was taking a photography course. I was amazed and fell in love with the process of being able to capture human expressions and emotions down to the millisecond. After graduating from GMU with a bachelor in Information Systems & Operations Management, I decided to expand my knowledge in the art of photography through books, attending seminars and shadowing local professional photographers at weddings and portrait sessions.

How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography through videography. I had been doing video for about a year when a friend of mine needed last minute pictures for a clothing line that contacted her. I helped her out and also enjoyed doing the photoshoot. She loved the work and slowly people started to come to me for photography. It snowballed from there and here I am having shot almost every genre of photography there is. I now have a passion for photography and love making people happy and accomplishing their goals and vision with my work.

What do you love about your job?

I love the creativity of photography. It is a limitless art form and I love when it involves other people, especially on a creative level. The fulfillment I get from photography is nothing like I've gotten from anything else. To see people's faces light up and their grin when you provide the product or service they desire is an indescribable feeling.

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

My favorite place to shoot in Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. is anywhere that has streets and tall buildings. I like the vibe shooting in streets and cities provides in addition to the model/outfit. This isn't suitable for all shoots, but anytime it is fashion related I love shooting in the city or in town centers.
