N/a

Haley. Tell us ABOUT yourself. 
I have been a photographer since 2011 when I graduated high school. I love photographing wildlife, nature, pets, and fine art portraits. 

Our readers would love to get to know you more Haley. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I love working with a models ideas when creating an artistic fine art set. Working together is very important to me instead of just my ideas or theirs. I consider the model and anyone involved part of a team. 
When I photograph wildlife, I love having the opportunity to watch animals in their natural habitats and getting to mentally understand them through their movements and postures. They make me feel welcome in their homes, and they trust me which makes me feel comfortable with them and wanted. 

Haley, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?

I started photography with a film photography class in high school. I absolutely loved working in a dark room. Originally I was going to go to school for cinematography but changed my mind to photography. It was a crazy ride ever sense, trying to figure out my main focus and what I love to photograph most. 

Who is your inspiration in life Haley? How do you keep inspired?

My biggest inspiration photography wise would be Paul Nicklen. I have been following his photo work and work with climate change for years. He is what I strive to be as a person. 

We all make mistakes Haley; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I haven't worked with too many people that weren't family or friends so I haven't run into anything that I would change yet. We always try to have fun on our shoots. I mean, an animal could be unhappy that it got its photo taken? I sure hope not though! 

Haley , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?

I make sure to accommodate them and what they need. Time of day, location, etc

Haley, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Having my work seen my National Geographic photographers on Instagram and having one of my photos displayed in a local photo store. 

Haley, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I can always be creative with my work! 

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Never give up, always keep creating, and keep shooting what you want to shoot
