I love the creative process! From first meeting my client to understanding what type of image they are seeking, getting the collaboration down and working…. Editing and right through to the end of delivering prints.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I love working with people and their passions. Some of my favorite shoots are collaborations. Recently shooting a group of Renaissance actors in my studio! They came with so many costumes and props. One of my favorites was a Pirate Captain and his real canon! we also had a group of Vikings and a Viking Queen! We had a full day of shooting, it was a ton of fun for all of us!

A fun fact about this photographer
I love live music! I worked for about 10 years photographing live bands for online publications. Nothing like the adrenaline of being in the front row of a rock concert!
