When and how did your business get started?

I started full time in 2008 after leaving my first career in systems
programming and corporate IT and opened my studio in Cranbury in 2009.
Initially I was primarily a studio photographer, and I still enjoy
creating rich, traditionally lit and styled images with my clients.
But currently, much of my work is shot on location or in a setting
that we choose to fit a theme.

Why did you choose the town you chose to start your business in?

Any business thrives on relationships, and the ones I've built over
the years in Cranbury gave me a good start. I've received a lot of
help and support from other businesses and residents in town, and
that's something you're not going to find just anywhere.

What is your business best known for?

Locally, my most popular sessions are the editorial styled photoshoots
I offer for middle school and high school age clients. They're a
chance for young people to get creative and say something about who
they are and what they care about. In the commercial world, I
specialize in head shots, portraits and images that are tuned to my
clients' brand and the message they in turn want present to their own

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?

Two things. First is that if I'm photographing you, at some point
we'll wind up talking about your own photography or whatever your
interests might be. I'm passionate about what I do, and you probably
are too. The second is film. Shooting film frees me up to focus on
you, and less on the gear, dials and menus. It's the medium where I
feel most creative, so most of my portrait and editorial work is shot
in that medium.
