How did you get started in photography?
In high school I enjoyed photography in art class and shooting for the yearbook. I have enjoyed working in sports and event photography and am currently focusing on glamour and fashion themed photography, though I do regularly do work in many areas of photography.
How much do you charge for a session?
The short answer is “it depends”. Every shoot is unique and priced depending on a variety of factors which can include travel, location fees, props & supplies, hair & makeup artist, duration of session, equipment setup, post-production needs.
What type of equipment will you be using?
I shoot with a Canon body and lenses. My primary camera is the Canon 5D Mark III, and my 2 preferred lenses are a 50mm prime f/1.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8L. I have a variety of strobes, speed lights, and lighting accessories.
What should a model bring to a shoot with you?
At a minimum 3-4 outfits and heels that correspond with the theme of the shoot, basic make-up, lip gloss, hair ties, jewelry accessories, hair brush. We will discuss specific needs prior to your photo shoot.
Do you require a deposit prior to a shoot?
Yes, I will require a deposit that is refundable, less expenses incurred, up to 48 hours prior to your photo session. There will be no refund for no shows.
Are you a full time photographer?
No, I am also an independent Information Technology Consultant which offers me a lot of flexibility in scheduling and travel. I can offer website design and hosting services for any models in need.
