I think of photographers more as directors and artists than anything else. We ditch the canvas and choose to paint with light; to sculpt with the environment we are presented with. Photographers tend to work with subjects who aren't always comfortable in front of the camera and it's our job to direct them from start to finish. The best part of it all is watching how pictures can reveal one's true beauty, and preserve it in immortality.
Photographers are thieves. We get away with loot from the most beautiful, the most scary, the most spectacular places that you can ever find. I get to work with people with fascinating stories and it's tremendously exciting to get to tell those stories from behind the camera. Working with a subject is about chemistry, it's a journey that's about understanding the world and human relationships.
I believe the best memories are made when we are surrounded by the right people. They are small episodes of people's lives and my passion is taking those moments and making them last a life time.
