Even as a teenager I hated being photographed...okay - I disliked being photographed then, I hate being photographed now. What gave me pleasure then and now is the ability to take pictures of others and have them surprised and happy with the image of them I captured. Most of the people I photograph aren't in fields requiring them to be in front of a camera. For life's personal moments I enjoy capturing the authentic moments. As for my corporate photography, I like learning new things about business and products and services that effect me that I never would have thought about or interacted with had it not been for my assignment!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
In addition to weddings, I have done corporate and personal portraits and events. I really like working with mt clients and giving them my undivided attention and listening to their needs and guiding them when necessary to ensure their photographic needs are fulfilled and then some.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I love taking pictures. I slack on other areas of my profession - social media, entering contests, but having clients return to you for repeat business for decades is the greatest honor I receive.
