I always enjoyed arts. .. especially music. In fact, when I graduated high school, I went on to study music; at first in Europe, then in the United States. I ended up with a Doctorate Degree in Voice Performance, a Masters in the same area, and two Bachelor Degrees. While in school, I met my future wife. I loved being with her and so I picked up a camera to immortalize some of the moments we spent together. I learned that I enjoyed taking pictures of people. Capturing emotion and true reactions gave me a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment. As the years went by, I began studying photography and started photographing events, but I was always drawn to portraits and people's faces. Today I do what I love. Come by and let's make some great memories together...
I love it when my customers look at the pictures we captured and are moved. It is a self-esteem builder for them, but also a morale booster for me (as a human and a photographer).
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many family holiday shoots. I give every member of the family something to do or to think about. I give them different personalities to "act out", which in turn gets everyone around them excited and involved in the shoot. I also have shot many events (corporate and musical) and countless portraits.
