Photography is the language of memories. Its ability to capture a glimpse of time with a fragment of light is truly and simply extraordinary. Every image is a tangible piece of history with the ability to hold within the palm of your hands and reminisce over and over again. The ability to expel my creativity through photography has always managed to move, motivate and inspire me (and on many occasions, saved my life), and the combination of natural light and the boundless and beautiful aesthetics of film are currently (and always have been) the most powerful instruments of my creativity.
Every image I create, wether it portraiture, landscape, or otherwise, I intend to create luminous, glowing, meaningful images that will linger, move and inspire others that see my work.
My (life long) love affair with photography started slowly over half a decade ago, though Im just beginning to find and refine my niche. I dream about all genres of photography every day, most of the time, in some tangible form, yet my ability to master the art of creating luminous portraits by merging abundant natural light that already (gracefully) exists in this grand and vast world that we live, with the light that exists inside every human being, is something that has become an intimate and ultimate pleasure to create. Shooting wide open (lets say it again - wide open) in ambient light has become my preference - this elegantly constructs and delicately assembles a softness that manages to caresses the subject, making almost anything and anyone more beautiful. Its about seeking to disperse its, hers, (everyones), natural beauty (because, there is, after all, beauty in everything) and the pure, authentic and at times even raw, emotion. The kind of emotion that happens to have you hold your breath. That makes you stand back a moment, exhale a little deeper. The light though (back to the light), has the capability of resonating and enveloping the subject (anything). That cluster of such primitive and solitary circumstances and actions has the strength to encapsulate a persons natural beauty within my lens, and that is so incredibly satisfying.
