I have been interested in photography since I got my first camera at 14 years old. My first film camera was a Kodak Brownie which I no longer have. It wasn't until I took photography seriously that I took time to learn about aperture, exposure, ISO, and light and everything photography that I realized I wanted to be a photographer. As I got older, experience became my teacher and I came to understand that photography was more than just point and shoot, and as I was able to, I invested in better equipment in order to be the professional I wanted to become. I continue to study and evolve, learning about the different styles of photography. Now when I look at photos in a magazine I figure out what it takes to produce images that speak to me and what matters to a client. I just don't see photos the same way I did when I was child. People matter to me, quality matters to me, my name is all I have and I am not about to ruin it by producing poor results for a client. It is a true saying, "You only get one chance to make a first good impression." People don't pay me to practice on them, they pay me because I am supposed to know what I am doing. Fellow photographers have told me that, "You're a professional when your clients are well pleased, they pay you, and refer you to others."
If you are planning a special event for your loved one, young or old and you want to capture that moment, don't risk it with just anyone with a camera. My work speaks for itself, so to say I do everything well would be dishonest or to say I am the best photographer you will find is over the top. My select network of fellow photographers and I focus on doing what we do exceptionally well, and that is giving you our best, unashamedly. See what others have come to discover when it comes to memorializing their special moments in picture.
