About the Photographer
Dreams do come true and you can do what you love and make a living at it. I have been a photographer and artist for fifteen years and have been passionate about it every breath. I am fortunate to have photographed many phenomenal places such as Hawaii, Peru, Germany, Austria, Turkey and many others including our beautiful country the United States. I have been given the incredible opportunity to work with several female photographers, they are my mentors and have assisted me in fine-tuning my abilities. Including: composition, technical knowledge, business sense, and confidence to achieve. It’s an amazing experience to capture a piece of history and then put it to print. That moment whether it is a smile on a child, a bride and groom kissing for the first time as husband and wife, or all facets of life, it will forever be. My canvas is the spectacular world around us and all the amazing human beings I have been lucky enough to photograph. My tools consist of both digital and film Nikon cameras with a wide range of lenses. I adore the ability to tweak and manipulate digital files; I call "Snapshot Artistry"tm. So please enjoy what you see and have a fabulous life. Always remember you are special and do make a difference.
The Team & Location
We are a small business that operates out of a home studio in Vista, CA. We have the capability to set up indoor or outdoor photo shoots, most of what we do is on location at a clients home or office and any of the beautiful outdoor locations through out the world. My team consists of myself and my wonderful assistant, best-friend and mom; Penny Kachuck, who also owns The Glass and Mirror Shoppe in Carlsbad, CA.
Giving Back to our local community is of great importance to myself and the company I run. Every year we donate photographic services, print products, money, cloths and house hold items to many wonderful organizations. Oceanside Family Recovery Center, North County Humane Society, A.W.O.L, ASYMCA, LLS, Pets on Parade held in Carlsbad where SebastianPhoto is the event coordinator and San Diego Fire Victims are to name a few among other local organizations. I feel that it is extremely important to give back to the community that has supported me.
Another opportunity to give back is thru our apprentice program. I have been given a great gift of knowledge about business and photographic technique from many fabulous photographers and professors. This is my way to "Pay It Forward" by teaching what I know to upcoming photographers. Working with SebastianPhoto will provide basic instruction in business models, lighting, composition, marketing, digital work flow and many more educational tools that I will pass on. So far we have had many wonderful apprentices that have been extremely valuable to our company and some have moved on in the field and some have become staff at SebastianPhoto.net. Thank you Courtney, Carly, Aileen, Stephanie and Kate.
