How long have you been into photography and how did you get started?
For about 7 years. I was just always into cameras. I think watching this kid back in my freshman year of high school taking photos of this skateboarder really got me into it. It was cool how he could freeze him mid air doing a trick. And then it branched out to absolutely everything.
Do you have any specialties?
I have shot everything from cars for magazines, street, weddings, corporate events, music videos…etc. But my favorite is portraiture, automotive, low light photography and shooting videos.
How would you describe your style?
What makes a good automotive photo?
Motion, good angle, good lighting, good edit. People are too afraid to go crazy on photoshop. It is insane what you can do in post to make the picture look even greater.
What hardware do you use?
I shoot on Sony platform, My main camera has been a A7III this past year. Along with some Sony lenses, I have a pretty versatile photo/video set up.
What software do you use?
I edit on the adobe suite. Lightroom and photoshop for photos, premiere pro and after effects for videos.
What’s your favorite shoot you’ve been a part?
I got to shoot the LA tattoo convention a few weeks ago, that was pretty cool. But my favorite shoot is usually my last haha.
What’s one car you’d lick white dog sh*t to shoot?
Sunkist or Fanta?
