What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have shot literally thousands of assignments in my photographic career; portraits, news coverage, features, travel, documentary, advertising, corporate. To each of those assignments I bring a sincere commitment to understand and connect with the subject and make pictures that will enable an audience to understand the subject more deeply. Perhaps most importantly I bring an unbridled sense of curiosity and joy to my work.
