What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have worked on many different varieties of photo and media projects. When working with food, its really fun to stylize the images around what the subject may be. Most of the time its highlighting ingredients as well as including complimentary items. Some of my favorite vehicle shoots have been of amazing cars, and the process to get them in the best looking condition for the owners,(working at autospas and specialty auto garages). Using light painting techniques and strobe lights to showcase features inside and out on location. Making sure I have the correct lenses and equipment for the jobs is vital too. I enjoy giving polaroid's to clients during shoots for some instant gratification. Understanding what the client wants and needs and being able to properly prepare to go above and beyond for a finished product.
