Looking at life through the lens...

People tend to ask "why photography?", or "how did you get into photography?". Every time, I hesitate before I answer. Then I usually laugh a little. See, the truth is, I can't answer why or how. What I do know is for as long as I can remember I have seen the world around me in frames. I see geometric boxes and shapes and the images that live in and around those boundaries. In my eyes, everything has expression, and a mood of sorts, and something inside it wants to convey. Whether it's a glistening plate of beautiful food or a family pet or even an empty home in the days between old owners and new, there is expression. There's something wanting to be said, some humor to be found, some deepness relayed through a fleeting moment. And finding this expression is my own little treasure hunt. Hopefully you will enjoy the bounty I create! 

WHAT I PHOTOGRAPH...

I photograph food, animals, interiors, families, special occasions, outdoor sporting events, and real estate listings just to name a bit of what I do.  If you are curious about something other than these things, please ask!
