"In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality."

- Ansel Adams


Photography has been my passion since I was 14 years old.

    I can remember my first camera, my first pictures, and the excitement I felt When I learned a new technique or re-created a vision from my mind. It was the first time that I truly felt happy and connected to the world around me. It gave me a key to living in the present moment, instead of the distractions of past or future. 

   The saying, "Everyone is a photographer now." Is meaningless to me. Passion and experience... a desire to document, explore, and experiment. To make photography a way of life is something I will be forever grateful for. I would not be a photographer without my subjects and it is always important to remember that A photographer does not take pictures, they are given them.
