A history of working on both of the lens has allowed me to quickly flourish in the world of photography. My background of show production and managing talent lends me that special edge for direction and landing a dynamic final product, while a modeling career provides me with extensive interface with photographers and studios of all levels. After paying close attention to lighting and shooting techniques over the years, I am proud to say that I am standing on the shoulders of giants.
Images tell stories when their authors behind the lens understand and embrace photography's many moving parts: Pre-production, direction, spontaneity, empathy, psychology, tech savvy, uncomfortable angles, and creative resourcefulness.
I adore facilitating talent, I love creating, and I hate relying on someone else to get the job done right. Trained as a broadcast producer, I have spent my entire working life being paid to do two things: Create, and facilitate talent and art in others. My "hybrid" occupation of model, photographer, and studio proprietor is a byproduct of an extensive production past: You cannot fuel live, current event television and radio for nearly a decade without melding multiple job titles into one.
If you're hiring a model, that model should know how to style herself, emote as an actress, and pose in response to your lighting and sets. If you're hiring a photographer, that photographer should never simply "throw paint at the wall" to see what sticks.
