I love the process of capturing the beauty I see in a person and allowing them to share and remember it before time takes it all away. I like to spend time with clients to discover what they like about themselves, what they are insecure about and what image they want to project to the world. It also takes a while to understand the subtle expressions we use to express our emotions that are as clear as traffic lights to our friends and family. It's a different language and it takes a few moments to understand it.
I have been a photographer for over ten years, but two years ago I decided to take the formal process of pursuing it as more than a hobby. More than anything, I am working on building a body of work and am looking to meet models looking to do interesting shoots to help me bring to life and express my own photographic eye. I do paid assignments for mothers and families, but I use this site as my creative outlet where I have a little more flexibility with what I can do.
What to expect: I typically only shoot in the mornings and afternoons, on location and typically only with natural light. Shoots usually last about two hours. After selecting a location I get there about an hour before when I expect the lighting to be best. This gives me a chance to spend time walking around, figuring out what shoots will works and what won't. It also gives me a chance to get to know the person I am working with and help them to relax. This way, when the lighting is perfect we can both be completely comfortable and not miss anything when conditions are perfect.
If you like what you see, contact me and we can discuss details of what you would like to do and a time and place convenient to the both of us.
