Why I am a photographer…

It stretches the life of a moment, an otherwise impossible talent for making still what will never happen again..

I specialize in portraiture; it is an honor to be welcomed in to such an intimate space with another person. More than anything it is a collaboration, I look for that brief moment where we forget the camera is there and an uninhibited presence reveals itself.
