Your portrait is your personal brand. Whether the photos will be used on your Facebook page, your Linked In profile or Twitter handle, your corporate website, sent out to media with your bio or included in a magazine article about you, your team or your organization, the image you show the world these days increasingly is the first thing people will see when they contact you. In many cases, if you have any online component to your business (and who doesn't?) your profile image may be the ONLY image people have of you. Given its importance in a hyper-connected, always online world, it is worth investing a small amount of time, effort and yes, money, in getting a professional portrait taken for your widespread use.

As a portrait photographer, I believe my role is to provide more than just an expertly taken photograph with proper lighting, editing and formatted for all online and print use. In order to really get your portrait right I need to understand what your business is and what you will be using the photos for (primarily). I need to know and understand who you are. And we need to get along well so that you feel good, confident, relaxed and at your best when I start shooting. A perfect portrait should look effortless, like all things done well, but it isn't achieved without hard work, experience and a sincere commitment to the art form that it is.

People across all industries and at all levels of professional development, whether the CEO of a multinational corporation, or an independent artist just starting out, carry around insecurities and hang-ups about the way they look. They worry their hair is too grey or too thin, their bodies too fat or too skinny, their skin too mottled or too wrinkled…Most people are skilled at hiding these concerns and most of the time, the pace of life is such that these anxieties are simply buried - but stand before a camera, a big white soft box and a clean white backdrop and suddenly, people begin to feel nervous. One of the most important parts of my job as a portrait photographer begins before I ever press the shutter button on my (amazing professional grade) camera. My first job is to put you at ease and have you enjoy the photo session we are about to start. Once that happens, amazing photos always follow and you will be surprised, and happy, that all the things you worried about, don't matter any more.

That's my goal when you hire me as a portrait photographer. That and delivering, as always, top quality images and impeccable customer focused service.
