Building off what I closed with above. I LOVE bringing people's visions to life. More often than not I am with a client and when we start shooting their product, food, event etc. they are so amazed by the imagery and in awe that it looks better than they imagined. In the world of everyone having a camera at their fingertips a lot of people have lost the experience of high quality content and when they experience that it's game changing!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've pretty much shot everything you can think of in the past ten years. The common thread to how I make each shoot special is by paying attention to the clients needs, asking what they are looking for and how they intend to use their images and really focusing on surpassing their expectations!
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I won 2017 NAWBO's young entrepreneur of the year in Chicago.
