I view the world through the lens; I think in f-stops and shutter speed. I see the world as a series of still frames often overlooked and abandoned by our mundane routine we call life.
Photography is more than just a picture; it’s a moment in time, a brief and fleeting opportunity to capture an emotion, a smile, a laugh or a cry, an unforgettable night or simply a chance to remember. A photograph can inspire, motivate, encourage or just make someone sit and think. A photograph can mean something different to each person who gazes upon it, provoking any number of emotions. A photograph is much more than a moment in time... its life. I take each project as a new challenge and enjoy the fact that I am forever learning. Once someone claims he has mastered an art that is the time that he is surpassed by his peers who refuse to stop learning. I will forever be a student in life, learning whenever possible and sharing what I've learned whenever I can. There is nothing new, only new twists to old ideas. With that I set out to explore, learn, create and most importantly, have fun!
