Where are you located?: Youngstown, OH

What
type of photography do you shoot?:
Mainly wedding photography with occasional family sessions and a side of
seniors and newborns.

When did you first join the Kraft & Jute family?: About 2 years
ago while looking for something different than everyone else was using.

What
do your clients say when they see your Kraft & Jute Packaging?
Anyone ever pass out? :):
My clients absolutely love my packaging! I
tend to work with the ‘artsy’ and creative crowd so they really
appreciate the look and feel of Kraft & Jute products when I deliver
their photos.

Name your favorite Kraft & Jute Packaging product that you
can’t live without.:
Hmmm.. how about product(s)? The presentation box
is my number one favorite followed closely by the corrugated cd sleeve. I
really love the printed discs as well, nice quality and sharp display
of the logo.

Best advice that you’ve been given in your photography career?:
Never let your camera leave your hand so you are always ready for a
candid moment and never compare yourself to anyone else out there.

What is your most used Photoshop (or Lightroom) tool, plug-in, or action set etc.?: Hands down curves and masks.

If you and your camera were invisible for one day, what would you
shoot?:
Hopefully Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster. They seem to be
camera shy so maybe if I was invisible… 😉

We want the good
stuff here, so don’t hold back. Tell us a story of something funny,
embarrassing or suspenseful that happened during a shoot.:
The most
embarrassing thing that has ever happened on a shoot happened when I was
photographing a wedding. The bride and groom were exiting the church,
they had just released some doves and were walking towards the limousine.
I was walking backwards clicking away on my camera and tripped over a
guest and went spilling onto the concrete…. in a dress. All I could
think about was protecting my camera so I did some somersaults with the
grace of an elephant James Bond style and fell hard on my right knee and
scraped my whole right leg in the process. I have since decided my
wedding wear will be pants and a simply adorable blouse 🙂

Ever split your pants or get injured all in efforts to capture that
special shot?:
See above. I have also tripped and stumbled numerous
times since I use prime lenses and tend not to watch where I am walking
when zooming in.

If you were in a public area and everyone was skipping instead of
walking, would you join the fun?:
After taking a few photos absolutely !

What is your current state of mind after completing this survey?: I am thinking about skipping 🙂

  1. Love these packaging posts! One small suggestion: it’d be helpful if you listed the products the photographers use (the ones displayed in the photos). Just a small list at the bottom if possible. 🙂
