|Why You Should Hire Me For Your Next Job|
|I've been around in the photo biz for quite a while, in fact I've been shooting professionally for over 25 years now. I studied photography at the Art Center College of Design and then immediately moved to New York City. The education received at ACCD was a great foundation, but there's nothing like being thrown out into the real world of commercial photography to learn what it's all about.|
In NYC I learned to photograph everything from celebrities, to cars, to resorts, to vodka bottles and bras – sometimes all of the above at once. While home furnishings was considered my specialty, I was hired because of my skills and understanding of working with light and composition. I make things look as good as they possibly can, before they are put in a computer.
My client list in NYC included AT&T, IBM, Toshiba, House Beautiful, Family Circle, Woman's Day, Chiat-Day, Disney, Cooper-Hewitt Museum, Dakota Jackson, various design firms, agencies, museums and the leading antique and antiquity galleries in the world.
NYC is where I first learned the importance of developing relationships with clients and becoming an integral part of the entire creative process. From concept to finished product, I want my clients to know that I'm available to help with whatever they need in order to produce the finest work possible.
Bend Oregon is now where I live, and it's where I learned to calm down. The lifestyle here has provided a fresh perspective on the commercial photography business, as well as life, and has given me a chance to hone the skills needed to do my best work. While this is now home, the world is my studio, and I am always available to travel for jobs that require me to do so.
Lighting, composition, and execution are certainly skills that I have learned, developed and mastered over the years and can bring to the table. But if you're looking for more than that, if you're looking for someone to collaborate with who can bring the photographic piece needed to complete your award winning team, give me a call.
