I am a photographer, videographer and sculptor living and working in the bay area. I have been working professionally in photography and design with several local businesses and agencies since I received my Bachelor's degree in 2002. I started my own business after I received my master's in 2005 from the San Francisco Art Institute and have been working independently since. I have been practicing photography (digital as well as analog/film) since 1995, and using Photoshop for about 10 years (there's not much I don't know about PS). I have been a user and lover of Adobe Lightroom since its first release a few years back. I have been editing video with Premiere for about 10 years as well. I consider myself to be an expert level user of these programs. I also am quite proficient with Adobe Illustrator and Audition. I have taught workshops on welding, metal casting and mold making in undergrad as a student teacher/tutor, so I also have experience teaching on a small scale or one-on-one basis.
I have been using Adobe Photoshop since 2000 and would consider myself an expert user since 2005. I received my training from the Cleveland Institute of Art and the San Francisco Art Institute. I work as a photographer and photoshop is an every day part of my life!
Over the past 8 years I have been either in a position of management or running my own business. Learning Excel has been instrumental in promoting success in each occasion. Whether graphing progress, or predicting outcomes, learning Excel gave me the tools I needed to assure success my business success.
I received my BFA in studio art from the Cleveland Institute of Art. There I focused in Sculpture and Photography. I received my MFA in studio art from the San Francisco Art Institute where I continued to use my skills in sculpture, photography and video to explore the area of conceptual art while pursuing my masters.
Originally, I studied Photography as a means to document my 3 dimensional art work, and as such I became an expert in technical photography, including the mastery of all functions (fully manual, shutter and aperture priority, creative shooting modes and fully automatic)of SLR and DSLR cameras (with a particular focus on the Canon EOS DSLR/SLR camera lines. Reproducing artwork photographically is a challenging task in itself, your technique must be perfect, as well as your ability to compose the image and be proficient in the proper use of lighting. because the reproduction of the Art work must be perfect otherwise it cant be used, for publications, portfolios, posters or whatever the need.
This type of work lent itself very easily to my own business outside of school. After graduating I became more interested in photo than sculpture and after a few jobs photographing events and clubs and the like, I started my own business. As a professional photographer I specialize in creative portraiture, family and pet photography; though my personal fine art photography has taken to many other types of subject matter such as architecture, wild animals, landscapes, fashion, etc. I have also dabbled minorly in weddings and boudoir photography.
