"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

-Aaron Siskind

About me

Photography has always been a matter of emotional connection to me.  It's never been technical-just a click of the button and then you're done.  It's always been far more than that.   It's always been something that I believe, comes from your vision.  Capturing photographs is in essence, taking a memory and recreating it in a way that it will be timeless.

What separates an amateur photographer from a professional photographer?  Someone once said; it’s not the camera, it's the photographer behind the camera because passion, creativity, and vision are essential for being the best photographer in the field.

 When I was 10 years old, my mother who always encouraged me gave me my first instamatic camera.  Boy, I was relentless chasing my family members around the house terrorizing them as I snapped pictures whether they wanted it or not.  Many times I had fists flailing threatening bodily harm or hands in front of faces. But, I never gave up because through all the threats and flailing hands there were those moments when I captured that one precious image that made it all worthwhile. Since my dear mother had just passed away I realise how important it is to have those moments of laughter, tears, or just images of everyday life.  And I discovered it's not about taking a picture. It's making an emotional connection to the images by capturing the personality of people. Capturing those moments through storytelling.  Today, looking at my images I took as a child makes me understand why I did what I did.  I realize that telling a story of everyday life is important to me. Because it is those little inuedos that are caught in an image.

Why hire me?

Capturing the emotions and character of a subject in an image is what moves the audience. I love to tell stories with my images because their emotions and personality is what inspires me to seize that moment in time.  For me, that is the reason why I am a professional photographer today.
