Photography is first and foremost a love for me. For moments in time, I can share what I chose to see through the lens.

Unlike many other art forms, photography is simply about how we perceive and view what's already around us. It's how one chooses to capture that view, that makes all the difference.

It's personal, expressive, and intimate.

I've always been interested in photography and cameras. I love everything about it from how it feels to raise the camera to my eye, to reliving the emotions and depth of that moment later through the photo.

I try to guage the success of each capture by how well that emotion and memory is conveyed.
