About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I spend careful time creating custom crops, applying interesting effects, and delivering a truly boutique product from a studio or on-location shoot. I teach frequent classes in the area at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro (where I teach most of my classes, such as introductory and advanced photography, photographic workflow with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and various workshops), Duke University, Town of Cary, ArtSpace in Raleigh, and others.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love capturing moments for families, brides, and clients in general that they fall in love with. I have been teaching photography since January 2005, and love seeing the world through my students' images.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I always like to start with a firm understanding of her/his needs and then tailor a photographic plan and pricing.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Ever since I took a photography class in 7th grade, I have attended numerous lectures and seminars. I was a member for some years of Professional Photographers of NC and enjoy their annual convention with many speakers. I've given seminars for Photographic Society of the Triangle about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been photographing most of my life. When I was quite young, perhaps 2nd or 3rd grade, my Dad gave me a serious Minolta rangefinder camera that was one of the first cameras that had manual, semi-automatic, and automatic exposure modes. I went on to be the school's basketball team photographer, to take a darkroom class in 7th grade, and to be a strong hobbyist. I finally went "pro" in 2006.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with families, dance troupes, musicians, and schools. I write for a magazine and have been able to photograph some important politicians, as well, including Hillary and Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin, and Barack Obama.
