I am fortunate to have been given a 2nd chance at life when I decided to turn my life around and lost over 175 pounds. Having had many setbacks over the years, I never gave up, but in fact learned to look for the positive in everything. Photography has always been a passion for me and I truly believe it is one the best ways to meet and appreciate every person’s uniqueness.
We take life for granted and put things off in the false illusion that we’ll get to it, but the truth is, no moment in time is guaranteed.Unlike many photographers who’s ego and attitude can make anyone’s experience less than pleasant, for me respect and courtesy is of the utmost importance and since its something I love to do, i am always willing to adapt, because its not about me. I love to meet new people, because each person is unique in their own way, and we truly can learn from one another.
I aspire to capture the beauty of people, places, moments, etc. For about a year now, I was introduced to the style of LightenUp&Shoot (courtesy Michael Thompson), which has left a lasting impression, simply because a lot of equipment is not needed to get a great shot. I love to shoot outdoors because of the countless possibilities one has playing with natural lighting and backdrops.
