To quote a famous ad from a local insurance company, “I am a lot like you, maybe a little different”:

Like you, I am passionate about my job and about my family!
I’m passionate about photography. I read, I learn, I try new things and I still make a lot of photos of my family, my travels and my wanderings in the great Pacific Northwest and in France. In fact I never stopped photographing, capturing the moments and making portraits of my family, even while I was working for Microsoft. I also do free sessions for a couple of non-profits (Soulumination, YWCA) that support causes close to my heart.

What makes me different is that I observed, experienced and understand the power of photography and the influence it can have on people, from personal self-esteem to increased businesses. I am passionate about that impact and how to maximize it, and can talk hours about that. Just ask me!
My sources of inspiration is derived mainly from street photography masters, and like them I believe that a great photograph is the capture of a moment, within a dynamic composition. My 2nd source comes from the modernist, minimalist and Pop-Art artists, and from them, the desire of simplification and the interaction of graphic elements. Finally, my 3rd inspiration is from fashion photographers for their attention to details, and the perfection of lighting, posing and body language.

Using all the tools and skills in my hand, I would define my style as Clean, Dynamic and Emotional, but at the end of the day, the best compliment someone could make me on a portrait is "You perfectly captured the essence of who I am /we are at this point in time." Isn't that what the best photographers are supposed to do?
I want to make artistic portraits that reflects who you are, and that you’ll proudly display, share, and cherish forever.

There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” -Robert Frank

Following that precept, I founded Folrev Photography which specializes in Capturing Personalities and Emotions since 2012.

*Folrev is an anagram of my last name: Frevol - Ask me why did I choose this for my business!

My images had been published in various US and international magazines and/or website, mostly through my contribution as a Getty Images photographer
