Tampa Bay Photographer - Studio & Office

This is where the real work gets done, from the first email that I receive from a potential client , to the place that I meet couples for consultation, and of course the untold hours spent editing & enhancing photos after every wedding, event, commercial assignment or video that I edit. Most of my time is spent in this office and I couldn't be happier with it. From the immense wall of windows which allows me to get sunlight all day long, to the expanse of room that I have. This is the place where I can  go for hours, without feeling the need to get away from my work.

Now that the world has experienced Covid-19, many people are forced to work from home. In some ways that's a good thing. But it's taken some people a significant adjustment to work alone from home all the time. I've been doing this most of my life and it suits me, especially since I have an in-home studio where I can complete 80-90% of the studio assignments that I shoot. Having immediate studio access is one of the most efficient and effective uses of my time and resources. I remember visiting college friends in New York after I graduated from college, who were working for some of the top photographers in the country. It was surprising to see the level of work they were able to create for national ad campaigns, in studios smaller than what I have now. So, when I found this place I knew I could make it work.

The Gear That Goes On Every Photo Shoot

When people ask about the equipment I use, I always downplay the significance of the gear, as it relates to the quality and end result achieved. And I still take that stance today, to some degree. What I mean is, I would feel confident with my ability no matter what gear I use. The choice of which photographer is choose, is more important than the camera that's used. And I know this to be true. However, as a professional I cannot show up for an assignment with an iphone. In fact, the look that I achieve is dependent on having gear that's up to my standards for both technical capability, quality and reliability. As you can see, I carry a lot of gear to each and every shoot, but it's worth the weight, to have these items with me at all times.

This is the minimum amount of gear that I take with me on every video production that I shoot, and the baggage fees are substantial for airline travel, but absolutely necessary regardless of where I'm going. Of course with this level of production, I'll have an assistant with me. In many situations I'll also have a dedicated producer, sound recordist, camera assistant/operator and lighting gaffer. On local shoots I can operate as an independent, one-man video production specialist. On larger commercial, corporate, and music video productions I've worked with crews that consisted of as many as 20-24 people.
