As A kid I always had either a 110 film camera or most likely a camcorder in my hand as a child. I was always the one that was assigned to usually do video for family and friends. At some time it felt like a thankless task and burden but now I realized it prepared me and gave me an unexpected edge when I decided to get serious and take on photography professionally. My specialties are Sports, Families, Couples, Children, Seniors, headshots, and weddings.
I desire to capture the essence, beauty, strengths and mood of what or whom I am shooting. I much prefer on location portraiture as it simply gives an excess of opportunities to highlight whom the client is that is something best suited outdoors.
The ideal image captures the convergence of light, moment and composition. When everything aligns, it’s spectacular. I believe that if you are going to do something such as this which bares such great responsibility, that you need, rather have no choice. but do it correctly. Those that don’t believe this outnumber those that do, and ruin once in a lifetime moments. I did not take on customers for almost two years after my first high end camera purchase as I did not think it was right to give sub standard quality to any paying customer. I practiced on friends often, and only took on clients once I mastered the software side of photography as well as the lighting and shooting aspect.
