Eventually I want to grow and move from 'just' environmental portraiture and headshots to commercial and editorial photography. I want to use my style in portraiture moving forward into commercial shooting. This process I expect to take years, if not decades. But I want it, and I want to pursue it.
Like all those pursuing the art of photography, this is more than just a job for me. I want to make the images I see in my mind a reality. I want to make an interesting and lasting footprint. To reiterate, I most assuredly have a long way to go and it's a never ending process. But I want people to hire me not only because I'll work hard for them and go the extra mile, but also because I'll make them beautiful.
I specialize in environmental portraiture and headshots. I travel to location to do shoots, and as such, I do not have, nor do I use a studio.
