Photography for me is more a passion than a business. Story telling through an image is the most exciting part about photography as every moment is unique. Capturing these moments is what drives me to pick my camera every single day!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have dealt with various clients in very different environments. I believe a photographer has to be versatile so as to adapt to the changing subjects. When shooting children, I always ensure I'm humorous and jolly. When shooting weddings, I create a relationship with the couple that goes beyond just photography.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
