Respect is a funny word! I was brought up by a single mother who always instilled the notion of respect, respect to one’s elders, teachers, police, and so on and so forth. Like most of us, we as children are taught at a young age to be respectful and courteous and decent, which I believe we all are deep down as human beings. I personally cannot allow disrespect to be a part of my day to day life. Whether that disrespect is towards me or others, I will continue to rise above disrespect in and around my daily life and in the workplace. To make a long story short, in photography (like any other industry) relationships are built on respect! I will always respect relationships that I forge and try to build a foundation of success, partnership, and profitability with like-minded creative individuals, business professionals, clients young and old from every background of life, race, and sexual orientation. I will not work with lax, incompetent, morally inept, self-righteous imbeciles. I look forward to working with new, wonderful creative individuals to not only build my brand but to also help build yours! Let’s stay connected!
