I love capturing a subject from its best possible angle in the best possible light. Creating an idealized representation of a scene, while removing unnecessary elements, is what photography is all about. The ability to find and capture a beautiful moment in time and preserve it for future revisiting is what makes photography such an interesting skill.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have worked on a wide variety of different productions but the ones that stand out best for me are always my fashion shoots. They require an open-minded approach. They flow with a rhythm and energy that moves from the photographer to the model and winds up becoming apparent in the final product. A fashion shoot can be a series of creative exercises that result in the unexpected and engaging.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have been featured by publications such as National Geographic, Nikon Asia, and Discovery HD, as well as in the campaigns of numerous international brands like Delta Airlines, Louis Quatorze, and Airbnb.
