I have always seen the world in a different way. I look at things around me with a different perspective than the people I am surrounded by. I am greatly inspired by the way nature plays with light. I become mesmerized by sun rays piercing through a tree, or the unique shape of a shadow cast by a cloud on the land. I look at angles, colors, light patterns, twists and bends in a tree, the texture of pollen on a flower. These inspirations carry over into my work with people as I pay special attention to finding the most flattering light and angle to enhance a person to bring out their inner beauty. Composition and background play a vital role in my photos.
With everyone having access to nice cameras today, it is often thought that anyone can take a good picture. This is not always true. Yes, an excellent camera helps, but one still needs to know lighting, focus, composition, and most importantly, timing. Timing can be everything at those spontaneous moments when one must anticipate occurrences before or as they are happening. A professional is trained to capture these key moments, while being consistent with high quality lighting, focus and composition. I strive to produce high quality images that will inspire and enlighten everyone who sees them.
I have enjoyed living out my passion for photography while owning my own business for almost 18 years. When photographing life events, I strive to capture natural expressions and spontaneous moments. My passion for photography provides me with the opportunity to shoot weddings, portraits, real estate, corporate events, and commercial applications. Although I am based in Charlottesville, Virginia I travel nationally and internationally as requested. My objective is to always produce meaningful high quality photographs. They are not just photographs; they are moments that will be treasured for a lifetime. Please contact me for a custom quote or to set up a meeting where we can discuss in depth your individual needs. I look forward to speaking with you!
