About me

It has taken me 20 years to be comfortable with the title of  "Photographer."  I have no formal training aside from IB Art in high school.  For many years I abandoned my craft for lack of direction and confidence; which was crippling, because I see the world in still images.  I have seen scenes that I have regretted not capturing.  I've seen moments that should have never been forgotten.  Through photography, you can capture life as it is, crystalizing emotions it in a permanent state.  

 

6 years ago I pick my camera back up and I have not put it down.  Someone once asked my why I take pictures.  My answer was simple.  "I just have to."  Photography fulfills my need to create.  In a world with disappointment and sorrow, it allows me to focus on the good.  If I am to capture moments, I prefer to capture joy and beauty that encompasses us all.  This I have found to be quite therapeutic.  

As I grow as an artist, my craft has challenged me to confront my fears and insecurities, which in the end has made me grow.  I am not the best, or the most skilled, but I am here.  I learn from each images, evaluating my intention but also identifying my mistakes and learning from them.  I am a "photographer", but I prefer the title "student".  I am always learning and know that there is so much more to learn.  

I create stories, I show beauty and I find immense gratitude that I allow myself to see the world in this way.
