When I was in my early teens I had an old Argus 35mm camera. I not only took photos, I also built a dark room to develop film. From this early experience I learned that every person is a work of art, and it is my job to find and record that art. I am always learning and discovering new techniques to achieve this goal. Photography is all about light, and how it reflects on a shape such as a model. I consider myself an artist, my camera my brush, and a model my canvas. All these parts work together to create a beautiful finished piece, and that demands a friendly, but professional respect for each other. The relationship between a model and photographer is teamwork, both learning from each other how to better achieve their goals.
