For me, photography is about slowing down and really seeing things—Seeing more deeply, seeing in new ways, and making deeper connections. I try to help my clients make these deeper connections with their brand, and with their audience.
To make this connection, I spend considerable time with you, understanding, and sometimes refining, your mission and message, in order to deliver imagery that will powerfully convey the essence of your brand. Then I tailor the shoot to your needs, putting together the environment, and team, to carry out the vision.
My clients have included, among others, The Keys School, Genentech, Teach for America, Ladera School, Spike Lee, The Guardian UK, World Peace Foundation (Tufts University), Beacon Press, One Day Magazine, Brigitte Magazine, Foreign Landscapes Productions, GoWall, and YES! Magazine.
I have also taught photography classes through the Palo Alto Art Center and privately. One of my courses is called PhotoJournaling and it combines images and journaling. We do some fun and thought-provoking exercises while learning some of the basics of photography.
Giving back is an important aspect of what I do. For many years, I worked in international development, striving to improve housing, water and sanitation, disaster preparedness, and education. Now, as a photographer it is still important to me to give back in some way. I contribute my time and expertise to organizations like the United Way, Little Kids Rock, and Help Portrait. I also hope to become a part of an incredible project for adolescent girls in developing countries called Vision, Not Victim that incorporates photography and girls empowerment. See a short but amazingly powerful video of it here: http://www.rescue.org/vision.
