Marti Rhea is an experienced photographer who knows much more than just how to use a camera. Her 20+ years in the photo industry have been spent honing many skills - lighting, set and prop styling, makeup, wardrobe styling, production, and even some food styling. She brings high energy, a positive attitude, and a great ability to listen closely and collaborate effectively to each and every shoot.
I love taking abstract concepts and turning them into a literal image. I also love the reverse of that - taking something quite literal and creating an image related to it that is more evocative of a feeling. I love working creatively as effectively as possible within the inherent limitations of each project - pushing boundaries while staying grounded in reality.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done many different types of shoots. I try to make sure everyone on set is a comfortable as possible while working, whether that mean dietary restrictions when it comes to ordering lunch, or building confidence in someone apprehensive about being in front of the camera.
