To put it simply, photography brings purpose to my life, and that purpose is to create. To create something meaningful, beautiful, and deeply personal.
I want to create more than just a pretty image, I want that image to make you pause, think, and reflect. Images that tell stories, evoke emotion, and allow us to escape the present for just a moment are the most powerful images of all.
Photos are meant to be shared. I create photographs with the liberating mindset that no one will ever see them, art that is unapologetically me. Then I turn around and share the crap out of it.
I find the best way to make my work interesting is to make it personal. For me, this means investing my heart and soul into every single shoot I am a part of. Nobody wants a photographer to just stand there and push the shutter. I inject my personality and perspective into every aspect of the shoot from the onset of creative conception to actual execution.
My personal touch usually includes loud colors, unique props, sharp angles, bold movements, and a whole lot of light. I aim to have every image I take say just as much about me as an artist as it does about the subject I am photographing.
