I love the freedom and versatility that my job gives me. It allows me to be creative and to tap into that side of my personality, but also fuels the need to analyze and perfect things in post production, if necessary.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done real estate and food photography shoots. Its very interesting and intriguing to go into another person's home. It can be easy for the client to feel nervous about a stranger coming into their home to take photographs. In order to make them feel more comfortable I like to talk to them about their favorite room in the house. This seems to break the ice by giving them the opportunity to show off their best area of the house. In turn, it gives me the opportunity to make sure that their favorite area gets the photographic focus the client would appreciate.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have not received any official awards or recognition for my photography, but the freedom and enjoyment to do this work has been my reward.
