Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have been a freelance photographer for more than 20 years and have captured images of people and places in nearly 100 countries. Each new place taught has taught me something new to create a unique vision as a photographer. I have been published by National Geographic five times and have shot professional athletes to Presidents and use a variety of cameras, lenses and external flashes as well as the latest image editing software to provide you high-end finished products. I own a private studio and can accommodate you at a location of your choice. My laid back style will make you feel comfortable being photographed. Currently I am an adjunct professor where I teach numerous courses in photography and geography. I enjoy meeting people and sharing experiences; I work with you to get the shot(s) you want and often explain what I'm doing as I'm doing it so you get to experience the process with me. I have fun photographing people and that helps you to feel comfortable so that I can get you looking the most natural. Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What I have caught on camera is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out a moment and freezing it.

We had an outstanding experience with Ty taking pictures for my daughter's dance portfolio. We knew that Ty had experience with kids and sports, but the results exceeded our expectations. Ty took the time to listen to my teen daughter and view examples of some of the poses she liked. He was patient and professional with her. He worked with her preferences as well as adding his own creativity, and the results showed off her athleticism and spirit clearly. The editing was skilled and our proofs came back sooner than expected. I definitely recommend Ty to other parents!

I like that Ty provided me with some options for an outdoor setting, he asked me about my preferences before he started the shoot, and he was extremely professional. Additionally, he was fast. I received a few edited pictures the same day and the full set the following day. I highly recommend him.

I really enjoyed working with Tyrell, He was very prompt, very welcoming and worked really hard to get me the best shots for me and my portfolio. He also moved really quickly with editing and getting the pictures back to me. I loved the pictures and enjoyed working with him and will definitely work with him again in the future.
