What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Over the past ten years I've had the opportunity to shoot for major brands, nonprofits, news organizations, and a variety of portrait, engagement, and wedding sessions as well. Making people feel special is key. It starts with getting to know a client, hear their expectations, and listening to understand what would truly delight them. If I know what motivates my client and we can infuse a little story and emotion, I can then get to work creatively to go above and beyond those expectations.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I've won numerous regional and national awards for my photo and film work. Instead of listing them all out here, if you care about that kind of stuff, I'm happy to send you a list. But I'm always more proud of the photos and stories at the end of the day. : )
