What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes! I continually take photography classes, keep in touch with other professionals, and I am always reading up on the latest trends.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Great question! I have always had a camera in my hand, experimenting with photography. I took my first photography class in high school and found out that I don't care for the dark room, but I loved capturing the moments and exposing the beauty in architecture. Professionally, I started in architectural photography, photographing for Realtors and Contractors, then expanded to family portraits and self portraits, and then into engagement sessions and weddings/events. Today, I shoot with a professional grade digital camera and I love photographing everything!
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common photo shoots I have currently are family portraits and architectural sessions. This is the best of both worlds, I get to meet new people, have fun getting to know them, and see beautiful architecture come to life in my photographs.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Choose a photographer that you are comfortable with, someone who is willing to work with your needs, and of course, someone who's portfolio you love!
