I have been shooting people, places, and things for over thirty years. On my journey as an artist, I have come to a simple understanding. Regardless of the subject matter, great photography is storytelling. Compelling imagery captures a moment and reveals that moment through emotion, story, composition, and craft. A great picture creates an intimate relationship with the viewer that suspends time and envelopes the viewer in the story. 

I try not to wax poetically about capturing someone's essence. While this may be possible, I think who we are is readily accessible, if we take the time to connect. I am a sensitive listener and observer. I pick up on the visual nuances that make you unique and translate this into compelling imagery that tells your story.
