It took me 5 years to develop my unique style of editing images. My goal in retouching imagery is to give it a surreal, dream-like quality, in other words, to give life to images using light and shadow, focus and color, to bring out the extraordinary within an ordinary image.
I studied at Virginia Commonwealth University after high school and ended up starting a photography business in Richmond, VA. My partner's and my company was voted one of “The Best Photographers in Richmond, VA” by Richmond Magazine readers in 2009... but even with that honor I was ready for change. I decided to leave the east coast and move back to my home state, California where I am continuing my success in the photographic world. I have lived in Northern California, New Hampshire, The San Francisco area, Florida, Virginia, and Southern California. My experiences with moving from coast to coast throughout my childhood has helped shaped the person I am today.
