Flash forward 100’s of corporate events & restaurants later (totaling 950,000+ images), and I ironically realized I needed to stop and learn the basics. After working with maybe 20+ photographers and shooting for some of the biggest companies on the planet I met my current business partner Jason Kaumeyer (JWK). Sharing our different skill-sets has shown me the value of color management, how to shoot-to-edit, the art of purposeful photographs, and the value of accrued knowledge from a variety of sources. Be humble, never stop learning and always be engaged. Double espressos and long jogs help, too.
