Back in 2004 I was offered a job to assist my step-dad selling real estate. I started out doing office work while I learned the ins and outs of the business and eventually started to study for my real estate exam. One of my new duties as his assistant was to handle the marketing side of the listings. That meant doing all of the photography. Problem was, I've never taken a photograph in my life. I fumbled my way through it not knowing anything about camera settings, compositions, lighting, etc. I just turned some dials on the camera until I saw something that looked decent. Luckily, digital cameras were just starting to get traction which made things a little easier.
Fast forward a number of years - I wasn't quite sold on the life of a real estate agent. During my life as a Realtor, I purchased my first DSLR - a Canon T1i. Mainly just to mess around with.
One day out of the blue I woke up and thought;
"You know what? I'm tired of being a real estate agent. I'm going to start photographing interiors."
Since that was a completely rational thought - seeing as how I was a terrible picture taker (I wouldn't even call myself a photographer at that point). I then spent countless hours researching the craft; watching tutorials, analyzing other photographer's pictures and lots and lots and lots of trial and error. The best way of learning is by doing in my opinion.
My style has grown and matured over the years. I produce clean, crisp images through the use of traditional supplemental lighting, modern retouching techniques, solid in the field technique and good old fashion know how. I'm fast, easy to work with and fun to be around.
My work has been featured in a number of magazines, online blogs, websites, print media, newspapers and places I probably don't know about.
