I had never set out to be a photographer, but I’ve always been an artist. I’ve been drawing from the time I was old enough to hold a pencil. In my youth, I loved drawing superheroes the most. There was something beautiful and sexy about them, they were more than average; they had impact. To me superheroes represented strength and grace. However, I never felt that I could express myself as a comic book illustrator the way I wanted. I would spend hours in front of the drawing table creating fabulous pieces of art but I didn’t like the isolation that my drawing board brought with it. I’m a social person and the drawing table was a very lonely place, so I began to search for a new way to express myself as an artist.
When I was twenty-seven I took my first college level photography course, where I discovered the beauty of portrait and figure photography. I love photographing women; the curves and form of the female body are amazing to me. When I’m looking for someone to photograph I always look for someone who stands out in a crowd; someone with unique striking features that inspire me to make them as beautiful as I possibly can. My other love is band photography, anything from promotional materials to live performances; live shoots are exciting, and energy is tangible. I want my clients to look at the finished photographs and be as proud of them as I am. I never overanalyze when I shoot, because thinking to much prevents me from being in the moment, and I like to let myself be carried away. It’s a creative process for me, and I feel that my photos evolve as I’m shooting my subjects. I’m not thinking about the technical aspects, as much as the shapes, forms and colors I can play off in the scene. I try to create an image of impact, and after I’ve pulled all of the individual elements together I just let myself go...
This is me for anyone who wants to know what I look like. I'm trying to look cool can you tell.. RRRRRR
