It is my desire to liberate the soul from the confines of the moment.
I am a New Orleans based photographer with a passion for good food, good music, good drink and those moments in time that appear just out of reach. It is the latter which has delivered me to the seemingly difficult task of capturing the inner spirit of a moment. This moment can be all things, funny, sad, enlightening, fearful, or just plain beautiful. The light of the sun glimmering off the sopping curls of a little girl, a bride on her big day laughing, full of love and anticipation of days to come, a saintly note from the stage in a smoky, dim lit bar, or the record setting moment in an athlete’s young career are just a few examples of these special moments.
Though your standard, archetypal posed shots are part of the job, and even necessary in some cases, I like to capture those moments when the camera is forgotten. When my subject is lost in their own moment; that is when the soul comes to the surface, when it shines through. I follow in the footsteps of those amazing photojournalists who have passed before me, and I strive to live up to their standards.
So please, take a look through the galleries at a selection of some of my favorite random pictures and if you are interested in my work or any of my services, feel free to contact me.
