The thing I love most, beyond the ability to capture a moment, is the opportunity to engage and to tell someone's story. I listen and look closely for the smallest details that allow me to craft the right outcome. Maybe its a story of the past or the way a family heirloom is essential to someone, I always find the link and then display that item centrally to the created image. I am a self taught photographer who is passionate about the science, technique and the pursuit of photographic perfection. I define that perfection as the "ah" moment for the client. When they see themselves in a new light, revealing the emotional self. In other instances, it is creating a story that will be told through the passage of time, classic and elegant in composition and rendering.

How did you get started with photography

I went on a three day exploration of the Texas hill country with a friend who is a photographer. I was handed the camera a few times and taught a few things. I felt the bug right then and there. When we went to process the image I fell in love with the entire process. Soon after the trip I bought a DSLR and began taking pictures as often as I could. It has been an enlightening endeavor in my life teaching me to see things from a different point of view.

What do you love about your job?

Documenting memories. Whether it be a family gathering, friends celebrating a special day, an alluring sunset, securing lasting memories of a senior pet, or documenting young brothers and sisters at play. One of my favorite pictures of me is a candid of me with my grandfather when I was two years old. It is rather simple, I'm squatting on the sidewalk and he is standing beside me and we each appear as though there is no other place we would rather be. That image creates emotion for me each and every time I look at it and that is what I hope to accomplish for each of my clients, a positive lasting emotion.

What are some of your favorite places in Durham to take photographs?

Doing portraits at Eno River State Park is such a treat. It is such a beautiful terrain with many options for different types of portraits. Whether on the hiking trails, playing in the river, or off the beaten path in the natural elements there are a wide range of options to make each session unique onto itself.
