I am a Photographer first and a Graphic Designer second.
I'm not one of the fortunate kind. One that knew what they wanted to be when they were growing up. Most photographers I meet seem to have had a camera in their hands since they left the womb. I never even liked taking snapshots. I started out working with graphic artwork and somehow photography sort of snuck itself onto my plate. I am very glad it did.
I am an improvisational, visual, creative, and problem solving photographer. Combining the elements of design and photography to create images with impact. To me, a photograph should be something more than what the human eye generally sees or that the human mind can even perceive from something that is in motion. I love to reveal the things that most do not see or simply over look. Exposing details, freezing a moment in time, or simply using dramatic lighting. Art and Science have always held my interest. I see photography is a mere combination of the two. It starts with an artistic vision, and then is the vision pulled off with scientific techniques. The medium is a perfect one for me.
