CJ Photo Seattle | About

Photography for me is not just about capturing your best moments – it is a lifestyle. As a photographer, I get to work in a new office setting every day, meet interesting people at important moments of their professional and personal lives, and help put an image to a memory. Photography is all about capturing light, and the tools at a photographers disposal used to shape that light can make or break an amazing photo opportunity. My background in Mechanical Engineering allows me to walk into a room and understand how to work with the lighting (or lack thereof) to showcase the subject in its most flattering way. But, while I have a top-notch technical understanding of the camera and how to use it, what I enjoy most is sharing powerful experiences with others and interacting with participants.
