“My experiences traveling the world, learning about people and cultures, shaped who I am as a commercial photographer. I seek to understand everything I can about my subject before arriving at a shoot. That way I can maximize my client’s time while shooting. My goal in creating someone’s portrait is for that person to shine through and not impose myself on their image. ”
