Q: How long have you been shooting?

A: Since 2006...point & shoots to DSLR camera bodies. Prior to, I learned on film.

Q: Do you shoot full-time?

A: No, I do not. I have a demanding Information Technology career.

Q: What kind of gear do you use?
A: I'm a Canon guy, using the EOS 5DMkIII body with some decent glass.

Q: Do you prefer to shoot indoors or outdoors?

A: Outdoors...more flexibility/creativity (shooting angles, available light, locations and so on). Indoor work is great though!!

Q: Do you have your own studio?

A:  I do not. In the past, I've generally turned my living room into a small studio. Small background and perhaps a light or two.

Q: Do you have studio equipment?

A: Yes. See previous question. A few backgrounds, light stands, and strobes here and there.

Q: What is a typical shoot with you like?

A: Fun! If no one is having fun, the photos will certainly reflect that.  If there's a set agenda for the allotted time or day, I assure you that we'll have a good time. I always recommend bringing a friend or two. In some cases, winging it (a shoot) makes it even more enjoyable for all involved.

Q: What's your favorite thing or event to shoot?

A: I love events. Birthday parties, especially the milestone birthday parties for the older folks! I'd still say weddings as well although that's no longer my thing. I have always been fond of street photography and capturing moments with friends. I love everything about photography, so nailing down to one specific thing is difficult for me.

Q: What photo editing software do you use?

A: I use Adobe Lightroom for minor adjustments, Affinity Photo if anything else is required.

Q: Why are you so expensive?

A: You think I'm expensive?? That's funny. Now imagine the cost to hire full-time professional photographer with a team. A studio shoot might cost you $2000.00 (and that's on the low-end).

Q: Do you shoot video?

A: Although my cameras are capable, I do not.
