People inspire me and their stories intrigue me. I see beauty in every person I photograph and love diversity, showing someone they are photogenic and capturing a feeling, not only an appearance.
Everyone is passionate about something. I enjoy capturing that in my portraits, photographing people from all walks of life.
A lot of my clients say that I am patient and make them feel comfortable in front of the lens. I like to think of that as some of my best qualities as portraiture photographer.
With a background in documentary photography I believe a good photographer must be able to lead and give direction when necessary, but that some of the best images are often taken in between the "posed" ones. For me the art in great portraiture photography is finding the balance between the two and capturing those real moments in between...
