behind the scenes
It is my job to show a person in their best light, both literally and figuratively, so I want my clients to be as comfortable as possible. And a lot of people hate having their picture taken, so I keep in continuous communication with the person I'm photographing. We're a team. And that way they know that what they're doing is working: they know they look good.
I do a lot of planning before a shoot. And with all that done in advance, a shoot is painless and way more creative. Once you get all the nuts and bolts out of the way, you can be pleasantly surprised by the nuances of what's happening in front of you and get a fresh take on the concept you're working on. All because you have a strong foundation in what the heck you're doing.
My clients often comment on how fast, calm, smooth and easy my shoots are. Oh... and I'm a goof.
I hope we get a chance to work together soon! Drop me a line!
