Q: Where are you based?
A: I am originally from Louisiana. In 2018, I moved to Rhode Island to be with my beautiful photographer fiancé, and we moved to Connecticut during the pandemic.
Q: How many years have you been a photographer?
A: I started learning photography in 2000. Through PPA and many photography conventions and image competitions, I have become a Certified Professional Photographer, hold a Photographic Craftsman degree, and am pursuing my master’s degree.
Q: What do you like most about being a photographer?
A: I mostly enjoy photographing high school seniors and business headshots. I love to teach photography also. Many times, I will attend a class or seminar and go into helping others.
Q: Who inspires you?
A: My dad, who was a photographer. I quit my full-time job to learn photography from him while running my computer and web design company (not the best way to do it). I remember my dad trying to explain the Trifecta of Exposure (ISO, Aperture and Shutter speed) and me going “what?” Now it all makes sense.
Q: When you are not creating portraits for work, what kind of photography do you enjoy?
A: I like to play with the camera. I will sometimes put it on a tripod and take pics of myself with multiple exposures in the same photo without photoshop. I also like to create cinemagraphs.
