There is a lot more to being a photographer than just taking a good picture. I feel being a portrait photographer is a balance between knowledge of off camera lighting, exposure, customer relation skills, & photo editing skills. So my inspiration comes from the desire to learn, grow, socialize & evolve with every session shot.
The technique I have devised is a compilation of years of nature & candid photography combined with recent experience in studio & school portrait style photography. The latter teaching me lighting, posing, & composition.
Overall my style is uniquely seasoned to fit any occasion.

My favorite things to shoot are the little things that sustain our lives on a daily basis & are far too often overlooked. Plants, trees, insects, flowers... I love to capture the inherit beauty in everything around us whether it be portraits or nature.
