November 08, 1970 in New Orleans , Louisiana.
My interest in photography started in high school where I took a
basic class. I loved it, but after a couple of years at University
I decided to pursue a more stable career. My creative side could
only lie dormant for so long. Years later in NY, I picked up photography
again with an unrelenting desire to express myself visually.
you look for it, beauty can be found in almost anything, even the
darkest and oddest subjects. I see images in my mind when I look
at the world. "How is the best way to portray this?" is
a question I ask myself constantly. Weather it is a person, thing
or place there is a feeling you get from it. I think a good photograph
is able to express that feeling so that other people can also know
Imm shooting with a person, I need to establish a connection . You
have to pull something out of the person - something amazing and
beautiful. I understand the fear often conjured by ancient civilizations,
the camera does take a bit of the subjectms soul....but they are
left with more in the end.
