I am a professional, award winning photographer based in Southern California. My love of photography began with my first photography class in high school. During this time, I learned that the camera was not just a tool but something that could be utilized as a link between composing and finding the emotion in an image. I found that a photograph could be more than a still image, it could be an image filled with movement. As a result, I became fascinated with the ability to capture a moment and bring it to life by finding the soul of the image. This fascination soon became my focus as a new photographer and eventually became the foundation of my work. It is what truly motivates me. Some of my favorite subjects are those that not only catch a viewers eye but convey a message; a message that can cause someone to feel and may even become filled with the desire to act and care. To me the power of photography is limitless, it only has limits if you place them.
