I got into photography when film cameras were transitioning into digital. There was something special and precious about film that I feel modern day cameras lack. It was in this start, my roots of capturing moments frame by frame, that storytelling became an ethos I would grow to follow in my years of developing this hobby into a profession.
So how does this directly relate to my direction and style of photography? Even though I consider myself a professional portrait photographer, I am first a storyteller and an artist trying to capture images that resonate with meaning. My early years as a hobbyist with Kodak Gold & FujiFilm Portra carries over to the look and feel of my digital images.
I believe in enjoying the moment regardless of the assignment. I do my best to create in the moment without having to re-create or stage moments and work towards connecting with all my clients. I believe getting to know each other is a critical part of creating amazing and genuine images.
