I am very easy to get along with.
I’ve worked with different kinds of people all my life: small groups, big groups, one-on-one, face-to-face or via Skype and other means of communications.
I’m creative, reliable and a bit of a perfectionist, but only as much as needed.
As a movie set photographer I know how to stay invisible & out of the way, keeping the set secrets to myself.
As a wedding photographer I’m the smiling face behind the camera, always catching the important moments but never being in the way of the celebrations and rituals.
I can take constructive critisism, suggestions and better ideas and implement them into my work as we, as a team, see fit.
