I really appreciate how one has the freedom to use a camera to capture something. There are endless possibilities on how one is able to photograph something and every single thing you do different can change the context of the image.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
While working in the portrait studio I got to spend time with high school seniors and we had a session that was outdoor. We would have more time to do that session than others so what I liked to do is get to know the person a little better. I would tailor the shot accordingly to what they would tell me or how they would portray their personality. The person that I would photograph would be impressed with how well I capture their personality. I would sometime make moms emotional because of how they were caught in the moment.

A fun fact about this photographer
Cars are my other passion, anything that has to do with cars I'm all about it. My dream car would be a 1970 Mazda rx3.
