|Tell us about yourself and your business.
I love connecting a person to their best self, and creating a portrait that will be a fantastic memory in the future. Everything I do is rooted in that need for connection and presence.
|What is in your gear bag?
Nikon D750, 85mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4, silver reflector.
|Where do you draw inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from cinema, editorial fashion magazines, and from my senior clients themselves. Their stories are often so rich, and when I connect to that, it definitely comes through in the image.
|What is one obstacle you had when you first started your business? What did you do to overcome it?
When I first began my business, I didn’t understand the importance of finding your own artistic voice – I tended to try to model my work on everyone else, and I let myself fall into the “gear trap.” I overcame this by reading a lot of books on art and technique, and losing the fear of taking chances.
