How would you describe your style?
I prefer to not have a style, not interested in my own style, but I am more interested in the style of my clients and what they are looking for, as well as what will be most effective and marketable for them. Some people say I have a "style", but that is simply a product of how I work and what I offer my clients. My own personal tastes are so varied, and constantly change, I never want to be doing the same thing for any length of time, I find that annoying.

What has been your most memorable assignment?
I'm one of the only photographers allowed to shoot at the San Diego Zoo, did a fun magazine editorial in Laguna beach with a Lamborghini and drove it back up the coast to the dealership, also recently shot a lifestyle editorial with a Fisker Karma, I'm a fan of electric vehicles. One of the most fun shoots was an editorial at a dance club where I had a group of girls dancing and having fun for a Valentines article, I like to create fun. There are very few shoots & projects I have that are not a blast.

What would you say to other enthusiast photographers out there who aspire to become a great writer/photographer/videographer?
Study Marketing.
