Profile

An innovative, self-educated professional with specialties in commercial product and lifestyle photography. My photographic & interpersonal skills are best utilized in team based roles in creatively driven groups and I am very adept at working alone as well as learning on the fly. I have in-depth knowledge of image capture using DSLR (both Nikon and Canon), off-camera lighting systems and proficient strength in post-production using Adobe Photoshop as well as the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite.
