What people are saying…

  • My experience shooting my first college game was fantastic! I walked into it not knowing what to expect but you quickly showed me the basics of what I would need to know. I really appreciated your patience and understanding towards me, it helped put me into the mindset I needed to shoot good pictures but also allowed me to have things to work on and improve for next time. Overall I stepped out of the box and began developing new skills that I can apply not only to sports photography but to other parts of my art as well.
