- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am very proud of a moral booster campaign that I did for US Soldiers overseas. It was called, "BOMBSHELLS: FOR THE TROOPS". This was done to commemorate a tradition that started back in the 1940's, during WW2. The tasteful pinup photos that I sent over were hand stamped on the back with a specially made stamp that read "ACTIVE DUTY SPECIAL EDITION". This went over very well with our service men and women as they had a piece of Americana pinned to their wall or locker. I hope that those unique photos became a keepsake for them to keep or pass on. I hope to do this again while our troops are over there serving our country.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A photo shoot may only last an hour but there are many hours beyond that photo shoot that involve a creative process. That process is what makes a Photographer become an Artist. A photographer's style is not created overnight. That style takes time to develop and years to master.
