I love that photography helps me turn brief moments into eternal memories. As a photographer, I love that I get to meet new people, learn their different perspectives, and help them tell their stories in a creative, unique way.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I’ve done a variety of fashion portraits, and I make them special by working to get to know the model behind the camera. I ask about their interests, favorite music, etc., so I can help them be as comfortable as possible during the shoot. I’ve also done hundreds of events (primarily parties), headshots, weddings, and commercials.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My party photos have been published in a variety of media outlets, including Out Magazine showcasing LGBTQ+ nightlife in San Francisco.
