What I love most about photography is being present for all the important moments. Whether it is a small business owner showcasing their menu to succeed in their dream to run a successful cafe, an event with some of the most talented musicians in the world, or a day of celebration between a beautiful couple bringing families together. Photography, to me, is to live a whole life.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have experienced many shoots, such as product, landscape, wildlife, weddings, advertising commercials, sport, events and more. With each shoot, everything changes, not just the gear but the mindset behind each photograph. Tonality is paramount, as the style must align with the client's vision. Liaising with a client and providing advice on opportunities to enhance the image tonality is often the difference between an okay photo and a spectacular image.
A fun fact about this photographer
I accidentally became a photographer at a large music festival after sneaking my camera equipment into the event. When I was spotted by one of the coordinators, they supplied me with an all-access press pass to officially shoot the event alongside other media giants. Many images taken that day are still used to promote the event.
