My approach to photography has become more akin to the cinematic arts. Since cinema is a visual medium for telling stories, I strive to capture the effect of narrative in a still photograph. If I don’t feel anything from a photo I take, I will move on. Everything started with landscapes for me. They stood as a canvas full of color and action, almost like a stage or set. Light would vary in an instance and act as a stage for some spectacular show. The reason I ultimately gravitated towards portraiture is because of the difficulty in capturing something real and genuine from such a variable subject. Human behavior is so spontaneous and fragile, that as a photographer I must too become vulnerable in order to feel what is being captured. The beauty of the two, landscape and portraiture, is that when paired they really do create something grand. It creates a state in which you are transported. That it feels familiar and that what you perceive is that of your own.
If you want the kind of visual storytelling that draws you in and transports you there, contact me. I'm available to travel domestically as well as international.
