Internationally published fashion/advertising photographer. New York Times freelancer as well as fashion photographer for various print publications. I've been shooting 8+ years.
We hired Justin to photograph our at home reception BBQ bash and he was absolutely amazing! I always saw him in the corner of my eye snapping away at wonderful moments with my husband and I with family and friends having a blast. I can't wait to see the pictures, but I know I won't be disappointed!
Justin Was awesome to work with he was laid back yet very Professional he suggested an awesome photo shoot location in addition to great Models I can Use for The Shoot. We All had an all around Great Vibe and the Energy was Amazing. My Experience working with Justin was Better than I expected and I will Continue to Work With Justin on More Projects in the Near Future.
I had requested Justin play the role of the random tourist taking shots of the city skyline when in reality he would be taking candid shots of my marriage proposal to my girlfriend. Justin was professional in coordinating the shoot, taking the photos and sent me all my final photos the very next morning. His work is awesome and I look forward to working with him again.
I have not been able to spend much time around Justin just hanging out but, he has that crazy vibe that honestly makes you want to just chat for hours on end. The only thing I find as impressive as his work itself is the actual motivation behind it. I remember when he was trying to raise money for a big trip to Africa. Things didn't pan out that time but, obviously Justin is the kind of guy who is right back at it first thing in the morning-- no matter what you throw at him.
The reason I score him at a 4/5 on Expertise, I haven't picked his brain enough to really get to the core of his knowledge. Wouldn't be fair to just toss 5s all across the board without any proof.
He's a good guy and an even better artist. I swear by it.
