I decided to follow my passions and moved from printing to photography as my profession in 2008. I had been perfecting my niche in product and a portrait photography and started getting noticed. My background in lighting and studio photography allowed me the opportunity to produce images of magazine quality for my clients, and by 2014 I was actually making more money with my photography than I could have ever made in printing.
I am quite passionate about the process of creating, but what I love most is exceeding my customer's expectations. I always try to go a little farther, and be a little more creative than what my clients expect.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done lots of product, corporate events, weddings, and portraits. Knowing how to work with people and produce flattering lighting make my photography standing out. I'm also a believer in using compositional framing. Knowing composition theory and lighting go hand-in-hand.
