As a professional photographer my body of work is a reflection of my personality. It incorporates an eclectic lifetime journey that has always veered off the beaten path. In my photography I capture the vulnerabilities and character of my subjects. I love capturing raw emotions as it is reflected back using both both Black & White along with Rich Color and Contrast. These elements are often discovered while purposely getting lost. As a result of my travels I have stumbled upon some fascinating places and have met many interesting characters along the way.
