"A great photograph should not only be visually appealing, but should also capture the essence of the person being photographed and authentically tell his or her story. I believe that it is equally important to understand the person standing in front of me as it is to understand the equipment I am using. I pride myself on my ability to see and capture the unique qualities of each person that I photograph."
"I work to establish a solid relationship with all parties involved in a project, and have a full understanding of the goals of all involved. Whether it’s a business professional, actor or someone’s child – it is my priority to understand the desired end result of the shoot before I take the first photo."
