What I love the most about my job is that it's that it allows me to see things from a different perspective, tell stories, be creative and go places.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've experimented with many types of photography, such as fashion, lifestyle, still life, events, maternity, abstract, etc. What I love the most is photographing people. Having an eye for composition, counting with a professional equipment, evaluating the lighting and thinking ahead of the shoot are few of the things that differentiate me from other photographers. I like communicating with my clients prior the event. I always bring a positive attitude and do my best to exceed my clients expectations.
