I've been artistic since I was a kid. I used to draw comic book characters when I was in 4th grade and always thought I wanted to be an artist. Like most people, I decided to go a more conservitive/secure route in life and became an engineer because I was afraid of not making money. Over the years I realized it was just a job and felt like something was missing. I would travel quite a bit with my job and happened to take a camera with me one trip. I'm a big fan of the outdoors and decided to take some landscape photos. After capturing those first amazing images, I've been hooked on photography ever since. I began my photography career selling fine art prints, creating dozens of unique images with adding a flair of creative lighting. I decided to get into portraiture around 2016. I was able to use my skills of capturing creative lighting and infuse those elements into my portraits to create a very unique look. Not long after, I got into the wedding photography market. I found I had a natural gift and love for working with couples and individuals during my shoots. Some of these shoots have lead to some amazing friendships over the years.
I have developed a few distinct looks for my shoots that have been well received by clients. I love capturing outdoor photos with natural light if possible. I like to add a touch of creativity utilizing lighting angles and sometimes adding artificial light for a unique look. For indoor shots in the main studio, I use mostly natural light from the studio windows. I like to use more of a light and airy style in front of the large windows for full body shots which creates a beautiful soft look that is extremely flattering both in color and black and white. I will also take the softness of this style and create a dark and moody look which I use mostly in the loft settings in Studio 2. I have artificial lighting setups in Studio 2 that create more of a vintage style feel along with setups to capture amazing headshots.
I opt for a minimal editing style. I'll perform basic skin smoothing, detail sharpening, and color grading effects to the photos. I don't like to over render portraits as I prefer to keep people looking more like themselves instead of looking fake and plastic. I'll remove blemishes, but my rule of thumb is that I'll remove it if it's temporary and keep it if it's permanent. I will do extra photoshop work if requested. I will also do creative composites upon request. I love to do creative edits and always looking for a new challenge. I view all of my photoshoots as a collaboration with the client. I love to try and capture personalities whenever possible.
