Vision & Approach
Collaboration: I love collaborating with other creative professionals. It really plays to my strengths. I am better at collaborating on an idea or concept than I am on creating the concept. I enjoy the process of going back and forth creatively and it always ends up making my photography stronger whether I am working with a great art director, make-up artist or stylist.
Reliable: In the business of photography you are often working under other people’s deadlines. The call to the photographer often comes as a last minute thought after the creative process has begun. This is why magazines and ad agencies often use the same photographers over and over. I deliver for my clients on time again and again. I once slept 6 hours over 2 full days to meet an advertising agency’s deadline.
Passion: I love photography. I love the act of creation through photography. I live all aspects of my life with passion. Whether it snowboarding, travelling, or my friendships, all are approached with passion. Passion fuels me to follow my dream of being a professional photographer.
Design oriented: I bring a designer’s eye and attention to detail with my work without actually being a designer. I understand composition implicitly. In my interior photography work I am able to distill what details are important to the design process.
Fun: I do what I do because I love it. My goal is to have fun while still being professional. I want my clients to have fun on a shoot. People work with people they like. If a client has fun on a shoot with me, then they will work with me again.
Accessible/Personable: I check my ego at the door on a photography shoot. I am friendly and fun and thus accessible. I encourage collaboration on my photography set. I am open to ideas from anyone on set. I may not always follow through on them but I am always open to listen.
Wow Effect: I always strive to create a wow effect with my work. I love to hear a client go “wow” or “that looks better than it does in real life”.
High Quality: I am committed to the highest quality within my work. I will go the extra mile or spend the extras hours to produce quality. I am not the cheapest option in the market for clients, but they get extremely high quality work at a really good value.
Beauty/Engaging: I strive to create images with feeling. I want to produce or document beauty. The viewer should want to step into one of my architecture images.
Creative: One of my strengths is to help bring an idea to life. I think of creativity as a muscle. You need to regularly work at it in order to keep it sharp and strong as a skill.
