The best part about being a photographer is to remember that you are a story-teller...one must always shoot for the client and tell their story and not get trapped in what I think is "cool" or different...my clients thank me for staying true to their story. At the same time my own expertise in my craft allows me to bring my own artistic vision the every story and job. Photography is where expert craftsmanship and artistry meet...it's the perfect marriage.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done just about every type of shoot there in my career. I have worked all over the country and in every kind of situation and condition. Every time I take someone's picture I feel the pressure to make something great for them. They have trusted me to capture their image and I never take that responsibility lightly.
