I am familiar with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Hasselblad, and other systems. I shoot Canon myself (6D). In terms of software, I'm well versed with Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Capture One.
In terms of lighting systems, I have worked with Broncolor, Profoto, and Paul C. Buff systems, but can learn most other lighting systems in a few minutes. I have plenty of experience traveling to over ten countries
on my own. I would consider myself highly knowledgable about the landscape in the Bay Area and California in general and can help scout around the area. I specialize in the outdoors, as my personal work involves a lot of nature.
I am located in San Francisco proper, but have my own car and I am available for shoots anywhere in the Bay Area and beyond.

I have worked with a number of photographers, but most notably Mario Testino, world famous fashion photographer for Vogue, Luisa Dörr, a Brazilian photographer for a shoot with TIME Magazine, Jordan Siemens, a National Geographic published photographer on a shoot for Runner's World Magazine, Paul Aresu, who is an advertising photographer from New York, Thomas Krappitz, who is a fashion photographer from Paris, and many more.
I consider myself to be very versatile, but more specifically, I am very technically knowledgable, particularly with camera and lighting systems.
