Wedding, Portrait, Commercial, Product
Photography was a hobby. I wanted to open my own restaurant, but after working for years in other restaurants, I realized it wasn’t for me. Photography became my backup plan. I’m so glad my life went this direction.
I had a long-term client that allowed me to create. They gave me very little direction. They trusted me to give them something great. That freedom was amazing. I miss working with them.
Angkor Wat I love how time has changed it, but still it remains. The mix of man-made and organic is breathtaking.
I’m a huge fan of old school portraits.
Ever evolving journey
I love the kraft
Creating systems is key. I always try to find ways to automate my workflow. Seemingly little tricks add up. My favorite to this day is using the buttons on my Wacom tablet to make selects from a shoot. One button advances to the next image. Another gives it a star rating. I can crank through hundreds of images in no time at all.
Old film cameras, watches, antique kitchen gear
Cherry blossoms. Each spring I find myself in the land of pink snow. It is magical.
I have a knack for remembering really odd bits of information and trivia. It is equally helpful and embarrassing.
My Wacom tablet.
I love driving through the woods. It calms and inspires.
I have a love/hate relationship with my commute. I have about an hour each way that allows me to listen to podcasts or loud music with the windows down when the weather is nice.
Anytime I talk to professional photographers or other Lightroom users I am quick to ask if they are using Lightroom presets. I do this because I really can't imagine my Lightroom experience without them.
