Why a professional photographer?
Because, you’re a professional at what you do – and you’re really good at it. Likewise, a professional photographer is really good at what they do – they’re a professional. There’s more to photography that simply pointing and shooting. A professional photographer is creative, they have an artistic eye, they know how to get the best of out a challenging lighting situation, they can capture a riveting and compelling image that everyone will notice – and they know how to use professional editing tools that can take an average photo and make it into an eye-catching, one-of-a-kind, work-of-art.
Graphic design is a creative process.
It is used to graphically convey a specific message to a targeted audience. Graphic design can be composed of: words, symbols, images and photos to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. Okay, enough of the formal definition…graphic design makes stuff look pretty. With visual arts, typography, page layout, interface design, user experience design, printmaking, illustration, etc..professional graphic design can bring it all together and create a compelling visual design that can show off your business or product in a unique way. And we’re really good at it!

In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.
From teaching kids the art of photography, to teaching adults at professional workshops, I love to help expand the skills and abilities of all levels of photography & design. I organize workshops with full creative teams for you to learn first hand how to put together a professional shoot on your own. I will guide you through the ups and downs of what can happen on set, while covering lighting demonstrations, portfolio reviews and post processing. This is a wonderful way to learn and build your portfolio all at the same time. Interested in attending a workshop? Contact Me!
