As a photographer I document society and culture with no hesitation. At the core of my work is a deep desire to capture the action of life in all forms while placing the subject at the center of each image. I believe photos are snapshots of life. I want people who see my photos to be excited to see the life my subjects are living.

Whether at a sporting event, drag show, or in studio I manage to capture a split second frozen in time. From the use of the rule of third to combining multiple exposures in one shot, changing the lenses and point of view, shooting tight and or wide; I am able to produce a well exposed, tack sharp image that moves the viewer. I believe that mastering the technical components of shooting is only half the battle. Having intention behind each composition is just as important.

Creating an inspirational and moving image has long been the goal of many photographers. We all hope to break the boundaries and push the limit of our art form, to inspire and cause the viewer to pause and fixate on our image over the countless other ones in the media, museums and social media that surround us every day. By documenting society and culture with no hesitation, placing the subject at the center of each image and focusing on preserving the fleeting moment, I believe my photos will make the viewer pause and to be excited to see the life my subjects are living.
