Aloha! Im Chris, a Husband, Photographer, Drummer, Golfer and Soon-to-Be Father. Photography was always a tool that I could use to express myself creatively. My favorite moment when you realize the magic is happening. Seeing the ideas come to life and the goals and expectations being met gives me a feeling of accomplishment and energizes me to hustle harder for the next job.
Ive worked in a corporate setting as a photographer and it was soul sucking so I decided to pursue a career in freelance photography. My patience and attention to detail has allowed me to stand out amongst the average "professional photographer". I know I'm still figuring exactly who I am behind the lens but my confidence, work ethic, and punctuality will allow me to take on any job and produce a high quality image.
Meeting people, telling stories, capturing special moments that you cant repeat. I LOVE seeing people faces when they get to see the photos, and the way they react to how I captured their moment. Photography has given me so much and Id love to spend the rest of my life providing creative, high quality images to everyone I work with.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have had the privilege of shooting so many different "types" of photography. Working with people and being able to listen, communicate and capture their vision always brings a smile to my face. Shooting events, being around so many people, that interaction always gets my creative juices flowing. Its subjective to ask how I made them special, I don't know exactly how they feel. From my perspective I know in my heart I always put in more then enough effort, I listen, communicate and put their interest above mine.
