Honestly I didn't set out to be a photographer,and just kind of happened. I suppose it's may be possible that it's what I do because my father was an ethousiastic photographer and I did admire the man a great deal, or it could be that my mother was an artist I couldn't tell you why for sure. What I can tell you is that I really love what I do and I spend a lot of time refining, perfecting and even obsessing over my work. It is a passion. I have always had a camera in hand. Even as a young boy, I was frequently photographing the kids in my neighborhood. Recently,I was reminded of this when a childhood friend requested that I may photograph her wedding. Before I started taking pictures professionally, I worked in the wedding industry, marketing various wedding proprietors to brides and grooms. Inmy spare time, I enjoyed scrapbooking. A man who had seen my work insisted I should show it to a friend of him. After admiring the book, the man insisted that he hire me to photograph hir family. It took some persistence, but I eventually accepted through multiple emails, both eventually we realized that they in fact had known each another as children.) At the wedding, I brought a picture I had taken of the woman when she was only nine years old.
I have spent a lot of time reflecting on things such as what is my style of photography. Style comes with time and is a difficult thing to force. I think more important than style is being aware of the literal nature of the image I see and striving to go beyond that in an aesthetic sense to create a captivating image.
