“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.” -Unknown
Photography is one of my true passions in life. It creates a silence in my mind, that gives it rest and fills me with creative passion that excites every cell in my body. I use photography to capture a moment in time that is completely unique; a precise moment that will never be completely the same again. Within that precise moment I try find beauty, and not beauty in a literal sense of aesthetics per say but beauty in the way of incandescent inspiration. It is easy to undermine the beauty in our lives; I like how with the use of photography we can capture a feeling and a mood of the most simple or complex things. I adore observing how things appear in our world, and how you can render them through a camera. Photography is a whole new way of looking at the world; when you are looking at everything with the potential of beauty, you see beauty everywhere. When I release the shutter I capture an instant in time, in which there is some ownership to that instant. The camera becomes my eye capturing an infinite moment to share. This is my view behind the lens.
