What I love a about my job is capturing raw emotions of my clients as well as telling stories through creative photography. Every single photo for me is a work of art. I edit each one with care, removing distractions, making each photo tell it's own story with a minimalist touch. I love the process of meeting new clients, the fun of the shoot day, the editing process and the joy on my clients faces when they see my work.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I do all kinds of shoots including weddings, portraits, album cover shoots, fashion editorials, business covers, magazine cover shoots, social media content for local businesses, modeling, photojournalism and so much more. Each shoot has its own special vibe and is unique in its own way. I own each shoot as if it is the last one I will ever do.
