Interview and Research

During the interview I learned to never underestimate my capabilities. There will be many different personalities, some may want there photographs taken quickly and some may want more than arranged. But most of a photographer should be patient with client and passionate about what they do.

Work Ethic

What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce. Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still. Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment -this very moment- to stay.
