I have taken a handful of film and lighting intensive courses which include Cinematography, Documentary, Visual/Film Techniques, Travel in Film, Film History, and more. I have learned aperture, white balancing, exposure, contrast. I am fluent with Adobe Lightroom and Premiere.
I love expressing myself in ways that show others the beauty in which I see them and the world. This is a reason why I take many candid photos because it is an expression of life as it is.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I did a photoshoot for Brielle Rathbun of American Idol (2018 featured contestant). This shoot was special to me because she trusted me and together we were able to clear out a dance studio and take advantage of lamps and checkered floors to capture pretty images. I recently took photos of a baby named Cade, using external lighting, and was able to capture his personality in the most fulfilling moments. I also was able to make him laugh which brought me joy in the photos that came from it.
