More about Austin L....
What do you love about your job?
At my heart I'm a storyteller, and I love that photography and videography provides a platform for those stories to come to life: for a personal legacy or a wider audience. I want to do my part to help people capture the important moments and messages from their lives.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done professional headshots, graduation shoots, wedding receptions and more. The common theme throughout all of these is making sure that I get to connect with people beyond the surface-level of a shot list and to understand what they value – and challenging myself to express that through the photos. I want to listen to the client and to help them feel as though they can express themselves entirely during the shoot, even if it means I need to help them open up with terrible puns and jokes.
