What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
For my portrait shoots, even before the shoot begins, I love to get to know each person and learn what type of story they want to convey through my photography. During the shoot I feel it's very important to provide positive feedback to individual(s) to ensure they are comfortable and ensure they are having a fun experience.
For my environmental, event, product and architecture photography it is important to know exactly what the client needs to tell their story via photography content. My focus is to get it right in camera by looking for the ideal perspectives and lighting.
