What makes your work unique?
My favorite part about what I do is coming up with new, captivating ideas for my photos and stop motions. I focus a lot of my time and energy on conceptualizing something truly original, compelling, and beautiful for each and every project I work on. Often the photographer’s job is to simply direct and light, but my strengths lie in my ability to direct not only the crew and lighting, but the overall concept, feeling, and story.
If I’m not the art/creative director, clients know that I have their concepts at the heart of every decision I make as the photographer. I am meticulously detailed and intentional with my images, but I also know when to step back and allow others to do their magic in their specialties.
Possibly even more important, I treat everyone I meet, work with, and spend time with, with respect, appreciation, and kindness. Every person on a crew is equally important and essential and needs to be treated that way. I have so much love for the people that make what I do possible, and I make sure to show that in any and every way I can.
