I use photography as a means of self-expression – I make pictures for myself, to identify with hidden qualities of my character, to better understand my reality, and to express my interpretation of the world around me. Being a photographer, I strive to capture moments of beauty and magic. I love taking something so simple and creating into a work of art whether I'm photographing people or landscapes the same approach applies. You must place yourself in the moment, be patient, and have faith that something magical will unfold. Other times I create that moment and capture it in order to make my visions become memories unfolding before me.
