D: How would you describe your work?
A: My work is vintage inspired with a touch of modern. As a child, I was very close to my grandparents and I would watch old movies and shows all throughout my childhood, so needless to say it shows up in my work.
D: Do you have a lot of competition in your field? What do you do to stand out from the crowd?
A: Yes, as a photo stylist there is a ton of competition out there. Jobs are mainly freelance or contract jobs so you really need to stand out period, and to do that you need to do the research and have the portfolio and experience to get the job done.
