What do you specialize in?
I specialize in lifestyle & active living, travel and food.
How do you define your style?
That's kind of like asking someone to describe themselves in the way that dating websites would. You always want to add those extra positives. But If I could choose three ways to describe it, I would say it is considerate, celebratory and an observation.
What do you bring to the table as a producer?
Having assisted in different studios and as a photographer myself over the years gives me a unique and inclusive perspective as someone whose job is to score the details so that it’s a smooth running machine on game day. Communicating needs and expecting the unthinkable ahead of time is key to a successful operation.
