I'm glad you think I know how to do everything! (Laughs) I think in many ways, it’s all an extension of itself. Illustration, makeup, retouching, lighting, composition: that’s all the same world. Yes, I studied illustration for several years, and although I work as a photographer now, I still have the mind-set and approach of an illustrator. Years ago, when I was creating in Reno, I had to make almost everything because there were simply no resources for the things I wanted in my images. Although I have formed a wonderful team of creatives here in Los Angeles and have been able to pull costuming from designers, the desire to create an image from the ground up is something highly enriching.
