NOW IN TAMPA!!!
There are those out there who say that the only way to be particularly strong in a certain niche of photography is to specialize in only that. We disagree. We truly believe that the different skill sets and experiences that you pick up from almost every area of photography can be applied to the others and can strengthen one's overall ability to create wonderful images, whatever the subject. We love capturing people doing whatever it is they do. We love shooting the things that we create, be it food, or buildings, or other works of art. That being said, we are now focusing on three primary types of photography. Real Estate and Architecture, Corporate, Community and Private Events, and Portraits and Headshots.
