As a graduate of Brooks Institute, I am passionate towards photography and video. While creating engaging, memorable, and timeless imagery, my drive is to exceed the expectations of clients and to build a lasting relationship. During my time at Brooks Institute, I am grateful for developing a strong attention to detail, color, design, and lighting throughout my imagery. Whether it be in a studio with off-camera lighting, or on location - I strive to find quality lighting.
I know Photoshop extremely well, with 6 years of experience in the software I will show you how to enhance your images through overall adjustments, color correction, compositing, retouching, etc. I also have over two years of experience shooting video and editing through Adobe Premiere producing music videos, short videos for blogs, family and wedding videos. I am most comfortable with Canon cameras, but have experience with Nikon as well. Even if you don't own either one of these camera systems, it's not something to freak out about because it's not about what tools you have, but how you use them!
I look forward to setting up a custom program where we will outline what YOU want to learn and then apply the right program and techniques in order to achieve the desired goal.
I can tutor in: Overall adjustments, Layer Masks, Retouching, Compositing, Reshaping of models,(Liquify), Curves, and Color Correction.
I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Professional Photography from Brooks Institute. I have assisted professional photographers in Los Angeles and worked with high end clients like: Acura, Beats, Lexus, Land Rover, KIA, Ford, Capitol Records, GQ Magazine, Prestige Magazine, Surfer Magazine, Eating Well Magazine, Hidden Valley Ranch, and Wolfgang Puck. I work effectively and efficiently while producing high quality imagery and services.
