I began shooting photos when I was eight, when I received my first point & shoot camera for Christmas. I started working in the dark room during high school and gained a photography minor in college. I have always done freelance photography work, but now with Giese Media, it is coming to be a serious part of my business.
I specialize in several major topics: people, music, travel and nature. I like natural light, bokeh, flare, funky angles – and most of all – capturing the moment. In general, I am not a high-concept posey-posey photographer. I push subjects to interact and see what happens. Yes, I do have studio lighting equipment, but I will use it at your location almost as a last resort. I want to see what magic we can catch!
Generally a standard portrait sitting runs 1-2 hours… and for every hour of shooting, there is at least 1 hour of editing. In the end, I provide the high resolution digital files for you to print on a personal level as much as you see fit.
Interested in wedding photography? I am a very casual shooter and work solo, which means I can only cover smaller affairs. As I mentioned above, I like to capture the moments, so this means less posed group photos and more joyous interaction between you and your guests.
