“Oftentimes the client is asking you to use your expertise and talent to come up with the look and feel of a shoot. They bow out. I love working on the fly. One of the beauties about having a portable system instead of old-school large format gear is being able to keep moving and chipping away. Not every shot is going to be a winner, but the method leads to success. You’re working with the athletes, the light, and the landscape setting up new shots and locations. There’s a discovery process in winging it; you can stumble on a good idea and build on it. You’re improving right there on location.”

“I also have a bunch of places I regularly visit that produce results. I worry that I’m getting formulaic, but I always think I can get the best shot I’ve ever gotten there. It’s a different take on that chipping away theme. Using different lenses gets you a myriad of looks.”
