About MeI am currently working on obtaining my Bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in photography at the Art Institute of Tampa. My passion in photographs has to do with the abiity to express meaning without words, a moment in time that will never be more than it was and yet never the same. Whether an image is preplanned or spontaneous there is always the factor of that one unexpected moment; when working with people this becomes especially true. There is a split second in which we get a glimpse of some fleeting sentiment or thought conveyed through the subject. I am fascinated by the character and soul that can be revealed through photographic imagery. Passion and unpredictability are the beauty of life and the basis for my photography. I try to bring a fresh eye and a unique perspective and thought process to any project I take on.
Through my many experiences I have gained a love for the image I can capture in those intimate moments, whether it may be in a huge crowd or with a single person. I have gained this realization: that time is precious and fleeting, whether through loss, love, or new beginnings, time will never be the same and we must capture the little bits of it we can.
CreditsI have had my photography displayed in shows at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, student exhibitions at the International Boba House, numerous photography contests, as well as several upcoming shows, including a show at the Safety Harbor Public Library. I am always preparing for the next show, the next possibility.
