Photographer San Francisco, CA

Photography for me is using my surroundings to find something unique. I am inspired by strange looks, loneliness, smirks, smiles, frowns, aged wisdom and exuberant youth. For me photography is more than snapping a picture, it is freezing in time an emotion before it becomes a distant memory. While my subject matter has changed to reflect my interests, I constantly endeavor to move past the pure esthetics of a composition to find concepts that are meaningful. My goal is to tell a story that cannot be conveyed with words. As my subject matter has changed over time my approach has always been the same; simply to capture subjects that I find moving. As I have matured so has my work, I have grown away from static imagery to pursue things with greater emotional value.
