Thank you for your interest in my work. There are so many photographers out there, why would you choose me?
To be a good photographer, I believe you need to have 3 things:
1. Strong Creative Skills to be able to envision the shot and deliver something spectacular
2. Strong technical skills to understand the camera, lighting and editing software
3. Strong People Skills to help direct clients and have them feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I have been in the arts for most of my life. I have always had an interest in visual media, and creatively, I have studied and choreographed dance for years. I have a feel for how to create context and emotion in my images, and that is what will make them treasured for years to come.
I hold a Bachelors degree in Computer Science, and worked at IBM for 10 years. Every year I invest in continuing my photography education through classes, books, and peer reviews. This includes composition, photoshop, lighting, color analysis, and more. I have a passion for what I do, and continue to educate myself every chance that I get so I have more options available to me when crafting an image.
Personally, I am fun and easy to work with. I know how to help people relax in front of the camera, and I know how to connect with kids (and Dad's). I believe that when you hire a photographer, it should be someone whose art you admire, as well as someone you connect with. I am always available for a phone chat to see if I am a good fit for you and your needs.
I offer a broad range of photographic services tailored to meet your needs. Please contact me to discuss packages and pricing.
