I started out with a degree in film and television production at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. A lot of my work I have resemble my past visions of what I see on T.V. and the big screen. Being influenced by movies and media, I was destined to fall into a life surrounded by creative imagery. I knew that I wanted to be that creator, so after picking up my first camera I knew with the world as my canvas and my eye as the paint brush, that all I had to do was just snap away to show everyone my art. I’ve photographed many things throughout my 10 year journey, but what I found is that taking pictures of people is what made me the happiest. And it’s not just the photograph, but the experiences I encounter along the way with those people. Connecting on another level with each and every person, what makes them sad, what makes them happy, you can tell a lot when you freeze their moment in time with a single click. I’ve stared at a lot of eyes for long periods of time and I can tell you, there’s nothing like getting to know someone while asking them to stay still for the shot. Whenever I get to work with someone, I always love getting to know them better so I can relate to their experiences. I try to put myself in their shoes because I think, if I can see myself in their position, how would I like to be portrayed on camera? I think that’s the secret to a great portrait or headshot.
