"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved."
- Ansel Adams
I believe photography is the opportunity to capture emotion in its purest form never to be replicated again in that exact way. My primary love is fine art black and white photography. Working in black and white cuts through all of the excess and noise and allows me to focus on the essential few elements that bring me joy. I want to collaborate with models that are not looking for pictures of themselves but looking to create art that transcends who they are to create something timeless.
I have been working for over 10 years in photography and am comfortable shooting all styles though fine art is my priority. I look forward to hearing from any model that wants to create something special.
"Don't shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like."
- David Alan Harvey
While I love use image manipulation software to change the feel of pictures - filters, lighting, contrast, etc. I have decided that I will not use those programs to manipulate the bodies of any models. Every person is perfect just the way they are. Creating unrealistic body shapes is something I will personally not do. Please be aware of this if you are interested in working with me.
