Every job requires passion to keep it interesting. What drives you as a photographer?
I have always been fascinated with the relationship between myself and my subject. I chose to be a portrait photographer because I like connecting with people. I find myself constantly adapting to various people and places, always striving to create a positive experience for everyone and searching for beautiful light.
What are 3 things you most enjoy about your job?
1. Being an entrepreneur
2. Having a creative outlet
3. Working with people
Since you are likely often shooting on location, it seems interesting that a photographer would want an office. Why Workplace One?
I wanted to be a part of a community. I am already a part of the photography world but most of the time I am working solo. So for those long days editing and retouching I was looking for a space where I could be surrounded by others.
