I have been a commercial photographer for nearly five years now, with more than 10+ years of photography experience. I'm also a film producer and writer, which is probably why I see photography as visual storytelling. I love all forms of photography, including portraiture and fashion, but there's something about product and lifestyle photography that truly gets my creative juices flowing. I absolutely love what I do.
Utilizing studio strobes, playing with light and shadows, to really make a product shine. In many ways, product and lifestyle photography breathes life into a product or brand. I work incredibly hard to ensure that each and every one of my clients are happy with the end result. My goal is to make phenomenal images that successfully depict the products I shoot.
Once I'm hired for a shoot, I spend one day researching similar products, creating mood boards and planning the actual shoot. This ensures that I am properly prepared with props, styling (if lifestyle), lighting and more. When the day of the shoot comes, I spend a good full day in the studio shooting. And the next day, I'm in post and editing raw photos to perfection.
Regardless of what your product might be, I aim to shoot, edit and deliver within a week - that way you can get your products up on Amazon as soon as possible.
