I primarily started off shooting Real Estate photos and producing property showcase videos locally. Then gradually started to add on Portraits and Events as the demand grew. I've worked with individuals, smaller companies, and bigger commercial clients. Most of my training came from a combination of real-world experience on paid and donated gigs as well as online videos and courses. Days spent shooting are some of my favorite days.
I get to see so many different perspectives and places. Working with new clients and long term connections with new start-ups and businesses is pretty amazing as well. Getting to work my own hours is a huge plus. I've never been a fan of 9 to 5. I'm more of a "work all the time!" person.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done engagement photos where I had to hide in some bushes with the to-be bridesmaids. It was awkward but fun. The light was a total pain since it was evening and the to-be groom was running a little late. I had to have a very steady hand with a zoom lens but I got several candid shots before everyone jumped out to celebrate.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I don't really go for awards or submit my work to any competitions. I take photos for clients primarily, making them happy and repeat bookers is my priority.
A fun fact about this photographer
I come from a family of photographers. I also love to work and create, constantly!
