Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. As a photographer, I shoot everything from event to high-end commercial portraiture. My specialty is environmental portraiture, with an emphasis on new media storytelling. My experience with on-location television work has taught me how to get great shots under high pressure situations with little time and minimal resources. At the end of the day, though, it's the connection with the subject that makes a great portrait--whether it's a headshot for a non-profit start up or a jaded celebrity, my personality will adjust to the needs of the client.

Beyond my portraiture work, I also work in interactive multimedia storytelling and fine art 'high concept' photography and mixed-media.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. To be successful in photography is more about running a business than taking a pretty picture. That said, to be successful in life is more about following your passions than making money. There is a constant dialectic between these poles for any working photographer. A good photographer should be an artist who knows how to run a business like a professional.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Make sure you know as specifically as possible what you want. Then find someone with the experience to execute that 'look'. Ask questions about their experience, about whether they do their own editing, etc. The photographer should be articulate about his or her abilities and honest about shortcomings. A good photographer can do the same thing over and over again. A great photographer can do whatever needs to be done with the right amount of input about the client's expectations.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. The best part of being a photographer is meeting people you otherwise might not have occasion to meet. There's a world of infinite possibilities out there, and people are what make the world interesting to me.
