My approach to photography is a discipline in which I apply principles from other fields to create the final product...the print. From approaching a subject and taking a photo to spending time editing the raw file. Footwork, body form, stance and breathing steadies the camera and assists in composition. The concept of using space and reverberation in sound to create music is an integral part of the visual process. I use the environment surrounding the subject to create something emotional, engaging, contemplative and uniquely interpretable by each viewer. Use of light and shadow can subtly focus the viewer’s attention to an area of a photograph. Delicate muting of color or conversion to black and white can accentuate form and emotion. The editing process is a gradual yet graceful dance, bringing the photograph to life. Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of my photography is having earned a strangers trust. Whether it be a quick portrait, chat or moving conversation about life, it is the trust and authenticity given to me by complete strangers, which has not only made me a better person, but has given me a small glimpse into the Human Condition.
