I love the fact that I still have a creative outlet after spending most of my career as a graphic artist.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I shoot mainly models and grads. I make an effort to make each shoot a personal experience. I like to joke around and make the model feel at ease. You should never tell a subject to smile. It should come out naturally once you've built a rapport.
