If you call me, please leave a voicemail. I have about twenty years experience assisting and photographing. I have been a first assistant on international ad campaigns and dozens of photoshoots with high profile individuals in professional settings. I have a lot of portable Broncolor lighting including an Elinchrome Octa and a Para133 that I would be happy to rent you. I can also pick up whatever you
need from ProGear Orlando in my commercially-insured minivan and bring it to set. I have basic Spanish language skills. I'm physically capable to handle grip - I am almost 6 feet tall and I work out almost every day. I have plenty of experience with Profoto. I work primarily with Canon and Sony camera systems. I will be on time, quiet on set and dressed appropriately.

I grew up in Colorado and studied photojournalism and Spanish at the University of Montana. I worked as a photojournalist at a small daily newspaper in Colorado before getting a teaching scholarship to work on my Masters in Communication at the University of Florida. I met my husband and we have operated a boutique photography business together for over 15 years based in Winter Park FL (adjacent to Orlando). Our main client has been Mercedes-Benz.
