Photographer and Probably a little Adventurous
I want to give a little background on who I am. I first got interested in photography as a young boy with my moms polaroid camera. I never let that turn into anything until my junior year of high school when I enrolled in the photo one class with Louanne Hein. She was the teacher that changed it all for me. That woman pushed me and drove me to strive for better in my work. I would love critiques and any feed back I could get. I feel like when a person can offer you constructive criticism thats when yourself can grow the most in what ever you do as long as one applies what they have learned.
I then went onto college to pursue my career in photography and learn how to grow as much as possible in the field. After college I had back surgery and was laid up for 6 months. During this time my actual photographing got put on hold and I allowed myself to do some serious thinking and figure out the direction I wish to pursue in photography. This is when I decided to learn as much as I can about commercial photography and I believe I found my niche. I want to grow and develop a real set of skills to thrust my career forward in commercial photography.
Now to where Im currently situated, with a little luck and lot of networking I was able to find someone to take me under their wing and teach me all the tools and tricks of the trade. Nick Vedros is a man that has been in the commercial business for decades and has such a vast knowledge of the field it takes a minute to comprehend how much that he must know. Nick has been a great inspiration to me and just being around him drives me to want to be a better photographer and really go all in with my work. I am proud to call him my mentor and friend.
What I Do
I am a product photographer that enjoys working with clients on building their BRAND. I am always striving to learn new things in the field. I pride myself on using professional lighting techniques, professional grade equipment, along with high end retouching to best achieve professional images. I like to shoot in my own style and what I mean by that is I try to shoot in a way that separates me from both amateur photographers and other professional photographers. This in return offers my clients their own unique images that stand out from the rest and can be shaped to best fit the Brand of client.
Asside from Being a Photographer I am always trying to assist or digital tech on commercial jobs. The reason for this is I believe that I will never stop learning what is going on in the industry. I am always trying to out-do my last image and create great work. There is no better way to do that then being in the field and learning first hand.
So In conclusion there is nothing more important to me then offering Outstanding images that both the Client and I can be proud of.
