No, I am a natural light photographer and the great outdoors is my studio. There are many great outdoor and public indoor locations and I can absolutely help you decide on the perfect spot for your shoot! While I don’t have a studio, I do have access to one for an additional fee if studio is what you're looking for. If you are scheduling an event or at home session, I will have you do a light study and will light set ups with me just in case. :)
