When I shoot for clients I am meticulous in my preparation. When I shoot for myself I enjoy the freedom to wander and find whatever serendipity places before me.

Biography: The dance of light on the world around me is what powers my creativity. I love taking photographs and I can make a beautiful image anywhere. The challenge for me as an artist is to go beyond beauty and find my connection to a scene, to become part of it in the moment that I release the shutter. That coming together is what I strive for, the moment when "beautiful" becomes "memorable".
