I’ve learned that a good photographer doesn’t just add a good camera and a couple of good lenses to the equation. Therefore, my photographic philosophy is comprised of the three guiding principles:
- Work every photographic situation like it was for myself.
- Treat every photographic subject like they are my own family.
- Provide artistic imagery that far surpasses expectations.No one will work harder for the shot; if I need to lie on my belly in the mud to accomplish the artistic vision we set out to accomplish, I will. To get the most out of any shoot, the subject needs to be comfortable with the photographer; my job is as much about easing the subject into a comfort zone, as it is knowing about the camera, lens and settings. Finally, I work with subjects to determine what their vision is, and then bring the expertise needed to bring that vision to life.
