Introduction: ( Please read this first paragraph before asking for my availability )
I've been doing part time photography for years and I've finally made the leap into full time in conjunction with finding the studio of my dreams as of this June 2021. Money is tight, and as professionals, we're charged the moment you click "check availability." So, INQUIRIES can be made through my SITE contact page, or through Thumbtack. Now, a bit of my background:
My name is Andy and I think I can fully call myself a professional photographer as it's my only and very fun source of income. Strangely enough, I have a Neuroscience degree from Johns Hopkins University and I wanted to become a doctor for most of my life. After becoming friends with medical students, residents, and doctors at the school, there was a resounding and unanimous "DON'T DO IT, MAN."
The nail in the coffin was something my advisor told me: "I've never met a Neurosurgeon that was still a kind person after residency." I had an identity crisis my last year and the only positive thoughts I was thinking were how I could still keep all my hobbies if I didn't go to medical school and found more lenient work. An even more exciting epiphany grew the months before my graduation, 'what if I make money doing some of my hobbies?'
So, here I am. I turned my love for photography into a career and I've realized that my time at Hopkins wasn't misspent. I have the same drive to learn, practice, experiment, and grow in this field as I had in the medical field.
If you've made it this far, thank you for reading my story. I'm incredibly grateful and passionate about photography and would love to work with any and all people to bring their stories to life.
Additionally, as I've heard some horror stories from clients of paying a lot of money for shots they didn't love, all my sessions are guaranteed.
You love the shots or you don't have to pay for them, simple as that. Otherwise, we can do another session to fix whatever was initially wrong in the first session.
