I love everything about being a photographer. Being behind the camera gives me a rush unlike any other. That sense of control and creating in the camera what you envisioned in your head is an awesome feeling. When clients see the final images and give me praise, it gives me motivation to keep creating and be the best i can be for my clients.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have shot many different types of shoots. From simple portrait shoots to events and weddings. One thing I ALWAYS try to do is bring humor to my shoots. It relaxes the person(s) and allows them to be themselves. Which is ultimately what you want when shooting people. A relaxed, comfortable client will show in your photographs.
