What gets me out of bed in the morning? I’m wildly in love with the process of understanding, dissecting, infiltrating and re-creating the product of my clients through photography. The truth is I’m fascinated by everything from exposing the hidden beauty in everyday objects, to the ultimate vision seeker and paradigm shifter –you, the client. I spend a lot of time listening and asking questions and planning a photo shoot before getting to work. I relish the process of producing a shared vision and incubating it to life. We play creation together and that is the magic that gets me out of bed in the morning.
