My career originally was in finance. I worked at two brokerage firms- first Charles Schwab, followed by Vanguard and before those I worked at the online payment processing service, PayPal. While working at Vanguard, I began editing in Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects. I worked on video projects for Vanguard and studied daily about photography while attending seminars and acquiring mentors. For a long time, full-time photography felt like it was just a bit of a fantasy. But, as I was transitioning to another firm, I decided that it would be much more fulfilling to pursue my passion as a photographer. I’m a strong believer in investing for one’s future, whether it be time, energy or money. Thus, I preferred to invest myself fully in a craft I love and could dedicate myself completely.
What I do
I shoot creative portraits, commercial, and editorial photography. My work is available to view on my pages dedicated to each type of photography. I seek to provide a variety of options to be affordable and high quality to cater to diverse needs. This makes me one of the best photographers in Phoenix, Arizona as I’m flexible and offer great value and attention to detail. Another unique aspect is also my flexibility in terms of editing. Depending on your needs, I can spend significant time editing in both adobe lightroom and photoshop to create unique and powerful images.
I describe my style as dramatic, vibrant, and true to color. I work hard and efficiently to deliver images quickly and exceed expectations regularly. My average turnaround for the first set of edits is within three business days. I use Adobe Lightroom to edit all the images that pass a minimum quality check and Adobe Photoshop to edit a select few of the client’s favorite images.
I shoot on a Canon 5D Mark IV and use the Canon 6D as a backup or for video projects. My vlogs tend to shed light on my personal life, friends and family. The lenses I use are the Canon 70-200mm f2.8, Canon 50mm F1.2, and the Canon 16-35mm F2.8 USM III.
