"My favorite thing about taking pictures is catching people naturally. There is nothing better than organic, unplanned every day life. It's who we are. No matter what the setting, I like to work casually with people to get them comfortable & bring out their true essence. I create cinematic photographs- feeding off of ambient light & always chasing an angle that conveys energy & brings out a feeling even in the most simplistic images. Much like the classes I teach- I shape my photos to have a rhythm, a feeling, a mood, a purpose. It's all second nature to me. I feel at-home behind a camera creating magic."
