Taking photographs and working with photoshop makes me feel more alive. I believe that photographs and images are more than just captured moments or merely a compilation of elements within a frame. They tell the story of a life, give voice to the idiosyncrasy of a time or place, become part of a greater whole, provoke us, and express who we are or what we want to be...When I take and edit pictures or do something artistically creative, I see patterns, I hear music and I think of album covers. That's right, I said albums. Just think Abbey Road by the Beatles.
I love the unique, artistic, quirky or emotive side of things - going beyond the lens to not only capture an image, but create one as well by getting creative with lighting, locations and Photoshopping. And I love meeting people and finding out stories, whatever the story is - a personal one, a love story, the story of an artist, a joyous or sad one, and even a strange one.
I'm blessed that so much of my work comes from referrals and building lasting relationships with clients and seeing the changes in their lives over time is a wonderful thing.
