I love creating colorful photos that display the beauty of visual arts. The inspiration of a quality image, will last a life time. If you are not moved by a great photo, then the photographer has not done his/her job. I treat every photo session as though it’s my first, full of excitement, energy and discovery. In my professional life, photography and documentary film making have always been prominent. I’ve been capturing electronic images dating back to my college years! “I truly believe if you don’t look good, I don’t look good”! “I try to live by that when I sit down with a client to discuss bringing their vision to light”!
How do you feel about traveling and the effect it has on your photography?
Traveling is one of the best thing that could have happened to me, it allowed me to expand my mind and point of view about culture and life. I think alot of photographers are caught up in trends of the industry and lose sight on how they can become a true trendsetter if they get out and see the world more which will help their point of view when it comes to shooting.
Describe your style of shooting.
I don’t have one style, per say I try to bring a raw, surreal artistic vision that can expand when I come into a project. Im into alot of forms of visual arts when it comes to photography so my style changes from project to project.
