About this pro
A big difference in my work is how I relate to people. I'm not shy - I will go up to anyone and ask to take their photo. Event photography, especially, is very social and you have to communicate with your audience to do a good job. I have a knack for making people feel comfortable, and that shows in my images. I have been in business for over 8 years and have worked with various clients including Google, Soulcycle, Microsoft, Adidas, Casper Mattresses, Girls in Tech, YouTube, One Medical & Equinox Gym. I work with a nationwide network of photographers that I subcontract, and I am happy to discuss jobs outside of the Bay Area. Feel free to email me with any questions at hello(at)stayreddy(dot)com! I love the fact that every job is different. A different location, different clients, different atmosphere. I've met people from all walks of life, and that is a beautiful thing. Everyone has a story and I'm thankful to be able to capture a little piece of it with my photography.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I aim to price my service fairly
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I occasionally attend photo conferences such as WPPI. I maintain a network of photographer friends and we're constantly in discussion about work, equipment, business development, client relations, etc. I also read up on a few photo blogs.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I knew I wanted to pursue photography as a profession when I took a film photography class in high school. I was amazed by being able to create and develop my own images. My parents weren't to keen on the idea of me being an "artist", but I never lost sight that vision, even after completing four years of college in a much different field. After college, I began shooting events part time here and there while working at a non-profit. After experiencing a devastating personal loss followed by losing my nonprofit job, I began taking photo classes at City College of San Francisco. Photography really helped to pull me through a tough time. Through networking and client recommendations, I was able to build up my business to a full time career. I love what I do and I'm happy to be where I am.
