My major expertise is to teach how to connect and communicate with models to achieve best results in your photos, as I believe a model’s presence in a shot is one of the key factors for any photo to stand out. I mainly teach how to use available resources, gear, and lighting to produce high-quality results.
I started photography about 11 years ago with a mission to bring in a unique and exotic touch to the industry.
My ultimate goal is to capture moments perfectly, allowing individuality to reflect clearly and personality to radiate accurately through the right story. I understand the fact that success can never be bought but a “can do” attitude helps one acquire it.
Over the years, I have learned and listened to the needs of people who wished to be photographed by someone that actually deliver the candid result. This is the key motivating factor, which keeps me determined to deliver high-quality work.
What to bring:
Your DSLR camera with a lens from 16 to 200mm with an at-least minimum F stop of 2.8 or lower. Bring an ND Filter if you have one.
