ARTIST STATEMENT / STORY

I' began my photographer career as a newborn and family photographer, but after a couple of years fell into the pits of depression.

It took two years before I picked up a camera again, purchasing an old 1970's vintage 'beast'.  I began working on a personal series, creating portraits and documenting people who were following their dreams and pursuing greatness. I photographed dancers, athletes, musicians, artists and entrepreneurs; recording pictures and words that told stories of adversity, resilience, determination and 'success'.  It was I joked, my therapy. 

Now I carry that experience (and same camera) in all my work as I seek to create both beautiful and meaningful portraits. Everyone's story is worth documenting and I love that I get to do that in a way that thrills me artistically. For that I am grateful.
