I am an artist with a passion for photography. The passion isn't so much for the technicalities of photography itself, but for the moment that is captured in powerful ways that elicit in the viewer a gamut of emotions, inspirations, memories, and motivation to act. Photography is an art form and an outlet for my expression.
I am a motivated hand's-on self-learner and most of my training has come through experience, collaboration with others, and online tutorials and video classes.
