WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?

I am originally from Austin, TX ... my business is currently based in San Antonio, TX ... and I currently live in Round Rock, TX. (I commute 1.5 hours to my studio for work)

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING HEADSHOTS?

I have been taking headshots since 2012. So going on 10 years now.

WHAT IS YOUR LIGHTING SETUP FOR HEADSHOTS?

I use the Westcott Flexkit. I alternate between a 3 point triangle lighting setup and a 4 point square lighting setup.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR STUDIO. DO YOU OWN IT? RENT IT? OR LIVE IN IT?

My first studio space was in my home inside of my garage. Now, I rent a centrally located 1500 square foot studio space that I renovated into my current space.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU LIKE TO SHOOT?

I also enjoy taking pictures of corporate events. I'm not afraid to get right up on stage to get the shots no one else can capture.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER PH AND THE HSC?

I first discovered Peter in 2014, and at that time I believe the Headshot crew was named PH2PRO.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO JOIN HSC ONCE YOU FOUND IT?

I have been a member of the Headshot Crew from the day I found it back in 2014 when it was named PH2PRO.

WHAT IS ONE THING PEOPLE WOULD NEVER GUESS ABOUT YOU?

That even after all of these years of taking pictures...I still don't consider myself a photographer. While I love photography... my gift is speaking, and photography has always been the vehicle that gets me in front of more people to speak to every day.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU?

Something I wish others knew about me is that I have a desire to make the world a better place. There is a lot of darkness in the world ... I want to be the light people see when they need hope and inspiration.
