"I believe that you've got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do." - Richard Avedon
People who know me as a photographer are surprised to hear that I once lived another life in the corporate world. I was successful then, but not in the creative ways my inner-artist longed for. I found photography and never looked back. It's my passion and obsession. It's the place where I'm at my best.
"I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them." - Diane Arbus
When I work with clients, I consider everything; from the visual story being told to the underlying message within. Whether it's commercial work, a wedding or a simple portrait, I strive to add something that will be memorable and stand the test of time.
I think of my style as Cinematic Photojournalism--a blend of movie-like elegance and unfiltered moments. If someone can't stop looking at a photo of mine, it's truly the best compliment.
