Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Lifestyle, Artists Headshots and Families
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Look for someone professional -who won't let you standing, waiting and probably won't show up.
Look for someone who will deliver what you want. So check the photographer's portfolio before. Every photographer has a different style!
Look for someone friendly and who will make you comfortable in front of the lenses. The last thing you want is to pay to have a horrible experience and look like a piece of wood, because you couldn't relax for the photoshoot.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I'm VERY easy to work with. I'll make the session look like a casual moment between friends.
I'm also very professional and reliable!
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I just love it! Love the freedom, the space to be creative, the interaction with other people, the ability of capturing moments/beauties and make it eternal...
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Really? I don't know. I attend a variety of clients and each have different questions.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. From my work as designer... I went to a photoshoot in Sleepy Hollow, upstate New York. I made a gorgeous dress for the photoshoot. Everyone loved it, except the photographer.
The photographer was very anti-social and a bit of a pain in the ass. I ended up working for her as a Photographer Assitant (for free!!! She never asked nor paid for that) in a very cold day, in the middle of a "haunted" forest. Then, it started raining/snowing -unpredicted by the weather channel!
So there I was, working ALL DAY, for free, under terrible weather conditions (and unprepared for such). Worse of all: I never even saw the photos of that day! The photographer never sent me ONE little photo.
But she was a great photographer. I already had my professional camera by that time... Her dedication to her work and her talent inspired me to "go for it" in the photography field.
Oh... and the dress she hated, is my best seller! :D
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. Is one of the best in the world for those who like to be creative! A great to make friends with interest in common too ;)
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. Always loved photography. I love arts in general, actually. So one day, I bought a camera and started shooting, shooting, shooting.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. I'm proud of almost all of my work -with exception of a very few, that thankfully were personal projects.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. Yep. Take continuing education courses always I can at the School of Visual Arts and New York University.
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. Yea... pricing is difficult in photography. It will depend on what the client wants, how many hours of work, where is the work going to take place, how difficult will it be to provide what is requested... It's a nearly infinite list that varies from photographer to photographer. So, please, just shoot me an email or call and I'll gladly answer all your questions.
