My fascination for photography started when my mother took me to a darkroom photography class. I was still in grade school. I remember vividly the emotion I felt as I watched the image appear magically on the page. Although I now make and develop photographs with a digital camera and computer, that magic is still with me today.
Through my photography I try to realistically capture the essence of each individual situation through the use of color, lighting and composition. I try to facilitate a natural interaction between myself, the camera and my subject. I feel my success comes from a genuine enjoyment of that interaction.
