If it involves a camera, then at some point in time I’ve done it. From the outdoors to traveling baby day photographer to high fashion, I have experienced it all. From photographing the homeless on city streets to capturing Premiers, Prime Ministers, Presidents, and Royalty, my camera has taken me to extraordinary places. I have worked in high-end studios and as a home-based freelancer, adapting to different environments and clients along the way.
My journey as a photographer began in high school, and it almost ended there if it weren’t for a real photographer who took the time to look at my work and show me how to improve. This mentor not only taught me technical skills but also opened my eyes to what truly exceptional photography looks like.
What do I enjoy most? Anything that involves capturing moments through photographs. One of my favorite subjects is working with newborns and their parents. However, I prefer to capture the natural interactions and genuine emotions rather than creating highly manipulated, photoshopped images. Every child has their own unique personality, and what better time to capture the love and connection between Mom, Dad, and their newest addition to the family? Those perfectly posed and photoshopped images can wait until the little ones are three months old when their personalities start to shine through naturally. There’s no need to rush or manhandle the delicate newborns into unnatural positions.
Photography is a powerful medium that allows us to freeze moments in time, preserving memories and emotions that can be cherished for a lifetime. Each photograph tells a story, capturing the essence of a particular moment and evoking emotions in those who view it. As a photographer, my goal is to capture the authenticity and beauty of life, whether it’s a candid street shot or a carefully composed portrait.
Over the years, I have had the privilege of photographing a wide range of subjects, from the grandeur of nature to the intricacies of fashion. Each assignment presents its own set of challenges and opportunities, pushing me to constantly evolve and improve my craft. I have learned to adapt to different lighting conditions, experiment with various angles and perspectives, and most importantly, establish a connection with my subjects to bring out their true essence.
Photography is not just a profession for me; it’s a passion that fuels my creativity and allows me to express myself. It’s about capturing the beauty in the mundane, finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, and telling stories through images. Whether I’m photographing a breathtaking landscape or capturing the joy of a family reunion, I strive to create images that resonate with the viewer and evoke emotions.
So, if you’re looking for a photographer who is passionate about capturing life’s moments, whether big or small, I would be honored to be a part of your journey. Together, let’s create timeless photographs that will be treasured for generations to come.
