Experience and style:
My experience consists of 10+ years of photographing portraits; although my heart keeps going back to the natural beauty of landscapes. The combination of the both has had a heavy influence on my artistic style. I prefer using the advantages of the outdoors, featuring natural backdrops and natural light. I take great pride in the fact that I respect the nature of the location and the background elements in the photographs as much as the main elements, the models. My images are light and warm; meant to bring into the visual realm the warmth of the love that couples and families have for one another.
For those who sometimes find themselves on my side of the lens, here are some technical details. I use a full frame Nikon camera, which I have grown very attached to, along with a variety of prime lenses, some that have been around for more than 30 years. I much prefer their clarity and their large apertures over their zoom counterparts. For my processing I shoot RAW and use RAW Therapee.Why not Lightroom like everyone else? In short; I like the look I can achieve with Raw Therapee, and I’ve never had a real and pressing reason to give up on my favourite Open Source tools. Additionally I use The Gimp for detail work and Hugin for stitched panoramas.
