Thank you for taking the time to review my commercial portfolio.
I began my career in photography working under the genius tutelage of Victor Sanabrais. Here I learned the very intricate and highly competitive skills required to photograph women's apparel, specifically lingerie and sleepwear. Shooting for clients such as Panties Plus International who brands include Playboy intimates, Kathy Ireland, Joe Boxer, Union Bay, LA Gear and many items for Spencers, I garnered an adept knowledge of how the garment industry's imagery works. I've also photographed for Rene Rofe' who's designs include Show Girls, Prink Lipstick and several of Victoria Secrets 2nd line designs and Gelmart, who was named Wal-mart's 2013 supplier of the year.
Victor also taught me the highly detailed oriented skills required to shoot table top and still life photography. I have photographed over 10,000 eyewear frames for Revolution Eyewear who's labels include Ed Hardy , The Beatles, Christian Audigier, Robert Graham, Affliction, True Religion, and several Disney lines. I've also photographed dozens of products for Osten Creative, shooting table top, still life and lifestyle imagery for several creative brand management campaigns.
While in Chicago I worked for Stuart Rodgers where I photographed at more then 150 elementary, middle and high schools. Covering everything from dances, events, sports, underclass and senior portraits- I've photographed somewhere in the vicinity of over 30,000 kids in 7 years. Some of these schools included national ranked high schools like Highland park, Evanston Township and Lake Forest Academy. Additionally, I covered hundreds of corporate events, and photographed CEO's and presidents at several multinational companies in the Chicago area.
Once I felt I was in need of a new and even more difficult challenge, I took on wedding photography. In the course of the last 5 years, I have photographed for 2 of Chicago's largest wedding studios managing to cover over 185 weddings and should break 200 by the end of the year.
The world of photography is constantly evolving, the needs of my individual client are always different. Drawing on my extensive background and experience I find both joy and challenge with each new clients requirements. I listen to my clients needs, likes and dislikes- and work to create unique imagery for them that is unparalleled.
I've invested over $30,000 in camera and studio equipment and am able to keep my rental costs relatively low. I posses a degree in theatre and dance, lending to my extremely amiable and charismatic personality. I am very respectful of all of my peers and am extremely easy to work with. I work quickly and efficiently. I know how to have fun.
Below are a select few examples of my work. Please contact me for questions or additional imagery.
