About My Photography
I'd consider my style to be very journalistic; a combination of documentation and storytelling. My goal in any shoot is to capture real, organic moments and create unique images that clearly depict the event and the people participating. My galleries offer a vivid example of the many approaches I take in creating portraits, both during the photo session and in the editing process. While I have my own particular style and take inspiration from a variety of different sources, I'm always open to new and original ideas. It is my priority that you are pleased with your portraits.
It is no secret that digital cameras and processing programs have become more widely accessible to the general public. While there will always been new and improved ways to Photoshop techniques coming out on the market, for me, Photoshop is a tool to enhance a photo, not create one. That being said, my basic uses for Photoshop are to mask blemishes or unseemly marks, adjust exposure and coloration and sometimes use a bit of stylization.Check out this example of how I mask blemishes and adjust the exposure of an image taken in poor lighting conditions. Additionally, here are some sample of the stylizations I've been known to use: montages, photo collages and touch of color.
If you use any social networks, (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) I'd like to add you! I use them for advertising purposes, and being able to tag my subjects stretches the reach of my work that much farther. Additonally, the use of social networks gives me another opportunityto get to know you, and for you to get to know me.
