Photography provides a powerful means to collaborate and share a collective vision and vantage of the world. Through the process of creating and capturing, I have the incredible opportunity to not only produce remarkable imagery, while working with amazing people, but craft visual dialogue and lace those very images with depth, complexity, and context. I cherish the challenge of translating idea and concept into tangible reality or archiving the essence of fleeting moments; the end product(s), sublime, multifaceted images that convey and evoke. My goal is to forge an engaging, expressive visual experience, one that is singularly authentic.
For me, photography is, first and foremost, about people. Their stories, their journey, their dreams|aspirations, and most of all their unique personality and identity. I strive to genuinely connect with whomever I am working with, whether the project is artistic or commercial, whether I’m photographing a sublime wedding or surreal editorial. That connection lends itself to authenticity, and authenticity emboldens the final image with uniquely powerful and profound characteristics. I aspire to parlay that connection, and those characteristics, into a final product that articulately projects the mood, emotion, and atmosphere of the moment; imagery imbued with dimension and substance.
Concepts like mundane, humdrum, and boring are foreign to me. In my humble opinion, one of the hallmarks of a talented artist, in any medium, is the ability to see the beauty and potential, seemingly hidden, in any given moment, situation, or environment. The interplay of light and shadow allows for limitless creative expression. My aim is never to merely create an aesthetically pleasing or technically masterful image but to engage, captivate, and mesmerize. My passion is rooted in the creation of photographs that cause one to pause and ponder, to think and reflect, to reexamine and remember. Even if only for the blink of an eye, my ultimate aspiration is for individuals to find themselves awestruck, lost in a captured moment, enveloped by a frozen, alternate reality.
