FAQ: What are your favorite things to shoot?

1. People: in the studio / location

I love shooting models and people in the studio and on location when there is a creative theme that I have been involved with creating!

2. Pulp-trash-pinup

Its fun, vibrant and I get to flex a wide variety of art direction including: styling, makeup, art direction, post-production (photoshop & lightroom essentially)

3. Horror & Sci Fi

They are two of my favorite film genres and I want to do more shoots on this tip. I love story telling and crafting a visual dialogue.

4. Food

Styling food is fantastic fun and something that my designer side craves more than the actual photography.

5. Family

Ok, cliched but its true. I love capturing the spirit of adventure, documenting the daily and thirst for life that my home family has. The pictures are just 'snaps' and aide-memoires. I gave up with my DSLR for family stuff along time ago. There's simply no room to carry everything.
