It has been 5 years since I have been on this journey. My business has lifted me, failed me and made a warrior out of me.
Photography is one of the most unique avenues of self-expression as it is the final view. You can have your perception, you can change it a hundred times, but that photo will never transform. The image is locked and loaded - for life.
A career is art is not easy, and it has given me more dark days than I choose to admit. This is my life, my heart, my soul and this is also my business. So when you look at these images, they are not just a simple snap. Every image is a curation of vivid thoughts, dreams, aspirations and endless nights of creative writing, and dreaming.
You will not find basic here. You will find real moments betwixt the modern mayhem. You will see images that are a moment in time. I have been scorned for not building a studio fashioned with $50,000 lighting systems. I have been laughed at for only using the light that is already there. I have also been cheered upon, and my head has been lifted. The fans of my work are here, because what I create means something more than getting the perfectly curated, post Photoshop shot.
