An intuitive photographer with a keen eye in seeing photogenic potential. Fashion photography is a more challenging art form than other forms of fixed subject photography. With fashion photography, working with models is a challenge when you are trying to get the right emotion from the subject as well as the clothing and location. Working with new faces or under-developed models is even more of a challenge.
“I have been in the industry for about 18 years. Much after modeling when I worked as an agent, I was able to help new faces develop their “look”. As an agent I was unsatisfied with the prints that the new faces were bringing in from “someone I know who is a photographer”. So instead of whining, I began to set up shoots in order to get the shot that would bring out what I saw in the models potential. So many people have potential but they do not receive the development nor direction that they need to have that look brought out through photography. I envision a shoot as an art, not just taking a photo. I am able to create art that can tell a story as well as look beautiful in print.”
