I love meeting people and seeing places that I might otherwise not know exist. Photography acts as a key to other worlds, and the most exciting thing about it is that no two photoshoots are the same. I love getting to understand a person's vision for a photoshoot and being able to make that come to life for them. There are always unique and inspiring experiences to be had in photography.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done numerous shoots for adventure apparel/gear, as well as many food shoots for restaurants and delivery services. Each shoot is treated uniquely as every garment, product, or dish has a different mood/story behind it. Creating beautiful lighting and creative prop styling are key to set a story for food photography. Having exciting scenery for adventure apparel/gear is crucial to create an authentic image of a product being used the way it was intended.
