After 3 years of living in the beautiful and exciting South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach, I now reside in the very beautiful, yet quiet city of Clearwater Beach. I am pursuing a Ph.D. student in Higher Education Administration at the University of South Florida and continuing to work as a photographer. I am a self-taught, freelance photographer based out of Clearwater Beach, Florida. As a Chicago native, I developed my passion for photography at an early age. Growing up in a beautiful city with an amazing skyline, lakefront, beaches and nature preserves, it was a natural progression. In 2011, I decided to turn my long-time hobby into a profession. I began shooting at fashion shows, helping develop model portfolios, family & maternity portraits, weddings and now, selling fine art photography at art festivals. I’ve spent the majority of 2011 traveling throughout the United States and Europe capturing amazing images along the journey!
Inspiration for Artwork
I aspire to remain a generalist photographer because I enjoy shooting any subject, any where, any time and under any conditions. Ranging from still-life, landscapes, nature, cityscapes and street photography (people watching, etc.), you will find an eclectic range of high quality images to choose from. As you will notice from my photos, I have an eclectic taste regarding subjects I choose to shoot.
The process begins with a great picture! Most of the images on display were captured without the use of a tripod and with a Canon Digital Rebel T2-I, T3-I or Mark 5IID camera. Once an image is transferred from my camera to computer, I utilize Photoshop CS5 to enhance color, create HDR (High Dynamic Range), vintage and black white effects.y portfolio and should be done soon!! Big plans for 2012 as I will be opening a studio space in the area and launching a magazine!
