Have you ever seen a photo so brilliant and so moving, you have to stare? Like a piece of art mounted on a gallery wall. Even if you don’t know a single thing about photography or art or composition, you find yourself lost in it, find yourself making a connection in such a real way.
I’m a wedding and portrait photographer. My goal is to tell a story, to connect the people in the photograph with the rest of the world through a lens.
“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”—Ansel Adams, Photographer and Environmentalist
Now imagine seeing a photograph that conveys such intensity and sense of wonder, you can’t help but admire the subject. I’m talking about seeing a picture of someone doing something “crazy,” and thinking to yourself that it will never be you. Well why the hell not?
Photography inspires me. And it inspires me because it leads me to want to inspire others. It’s an art, a passion, a language of its own class.
This blog is about taking adventure and life, and preserving and transferring it into a medium of its own.
