I like to walk. I like to walk and wander.
I like to walk, wander, watch and wait and wait and wander some more.
And then talk.
Within the rhythm of everyday life there are boundless number of interesting people, places and moments that are yet to be discovered and I wake up each morning hoping I can discover something new.
It is the shared humanity we all contain that I ultimately want to present through my environmental portraiture series because I believe we are more similar than we are different. Whether small or large, quiet or loud, I try to capture the emotion of the moment so you can feel it rather than just see it. Pretty pictures are nice, but my goal is to dive deeper.
Sometimes deeper is just a face.
Sometimes deeper is the intimacy between loved ones.
Sometimes deeper is the joy or quirkiness of a moment.
Or the sorrow of one.
I believe each one of my images must stand on its own, but I ultimately strive to capture moments that are all connected through their shared emotional honesty. Lighting and composition are highly important elements in my work, but I hope they exist to serve and heighten the higher goal of capturing the pulse of that fleeting moment in a memorable way.
It’s a joy to be alive and hopefully the spontaneity of life can be felt in my work.
I don’t know what’s next and I like it like that.
