I'm a photographer and shoot director, specializing in product photography.
I am technically creative, obsessed with quality and focused on client design goals. I always work until both the client and me are happy with the results. I have solid skills in lighting and in infrared, UV, alternate-spectrum, time-lapse, high-speed and motion-control photography.
The more complex the project, the better. My favorite kind of client call begins with the words "Would it be possible to...?". I often build equipment to solve project challenges. If I have plenty of time to dream about a project, I can usually not only address its problems but also come up with a smooth, painless approach.
When I am working as part of a group, people often peg me as "smart and confident." Maybe it's the gray hair, or maybe people get this impression just because I can focus on a few connected subjects for a very long time without getting bored.
I take great pride in my work, but I don't waste time admiring myself for it. I'm more a craftsman than an artist.
