Passion is an intense emotion that compels feeling, enthusiasm, or desire. Photography is that thing for me - it’s the one thing that I can remember always loving from a very young age. I love the challenge of getting that perfect composition for a shot, whether planned over time, or even more so at an event where quick thinking is imperative to ensure that moment is seized in its full glory. Those experiences really get my adrenaline going.
My professional career took off in the summer of 2010 when I bought my first DSLR camera and traveled to Brisbane & Sydney in Australia, and Los Angeles and South Beach in the U.S.A. to experience the world through my lenses. Those were my first steps to realizing my deep desire to capture snippets of the world as I see it and in return to let the world see itself through me. I haven’t looked back since.
Photography is everything wonderful that I ever imagined it would be. It truly is a new world when seen through my lens. The small things we often forget, or overlook in life because we are in such a rush, are brought into perspective with photography. The ability to capture a single moment in time is the priceless magic of photography. It can bring years of joy to life long after that moment has passed in a way that memory alone cannot.
I am encouraged by the positive feedback, since the embarking on this journey, from the many persons who have viewed my work and commented that I've got the inescapable "it" that is indicative of a talent to be admired when it is aligned and nurtured in its correct field. I am driven to work continuously to develop my craft and to do my part to reflect the world’s beauty back to it.

Photography is... painting with light. There is no better light than from natural sources. In order to be true and authentic in my work, I shoot mostly with natural light and in natural settings.
