How long have you been a photographer?
10 years.

How would you describe your style?
Fashionable, classy, and unique, or as I like to say, “XQUISITE.”

What equipment and software do you use?
Camera gear:

  • Canon 7d
  • 50mm f1.8 lens
  • 70-200 f2.8 IS lens
  • Multiple flashes and triggers for the flashes (used off camera)

Editing:

  • Photoshop CS4
  • Lightroom 3

Where is your favorite location to shoot pictures?
Beaches, but I love boudoir photos too so if that’s the case, an upscale venue. I want that WOW factor with my images, so I normally choose a venue based on the project.

Mac or PC?

Mac User.

What has been your most memorable assignment?
The last shoot I did because of all the exotic cars and the published models. They gave me so much and allowed me to create some great images. You’ll find them on my page.

What would you say to other enthusiast photographers out there who aspire to become a great photographer?
Don’t ever give up! When you think your photos are "perfect," keep trying.  Strive to make them better.
