Making Your
Photography Extraordinary—

Taking so many different types of photography is what keeps my work fresh.

Portraits

Taking a good portrait is about making your subject comfortable. You have to engage with your subject in a short amount of time, and move them to demonstrate who they are or what you want to convey. Great lighting, scenery and composition won't save a photo of an uncomfortable person.

Headshots

In a controlled setting, you can focus on the look the subject wants for their business, acting, author, modeling or profile headshots. You have to know the angles and lighting that capture the intensity, flattering, or professional look they want.

Candid, engaging moments of love

Everything I've learned goes into wedding photography. You need to take great portraits, capture candid interactions, adjust for the environment inside or outside, and make everyone comfortable. Even more so for engagement photography where you have less time to build rapport with your clients. Taking photos of these once-in-a-lifetime moments is an honor for me.

Whether it be a corporate function, music festival, or protest rally, this is where you can find the most candid photography. It is not always fun, but it is always real. The key is to make the adjustments accordingly, and not interfere with the subject. As soon as they realize you're there, you lose the candid shot.

Like portrait photography, you have to know your subject. Getting to know your client's brand and message is vital, but good communication is the key. Being able to envision what your client wants to convey creates a successful commercial or architectural shoot.

In photography, the ends justify the means, but you must be mindful of how you make the client feel in order to establish a good relationship that will bring them back and refer other potential clients to you. Please take a moment to see what past clients have said about working with me and the finished product.
