I love having the opportunity to document a moment in history that will never happen again. Once the day passes all that is left is my photos. It also connects me to the moment in a soulful way. My boots have been on the ground in multiple city in multiple countries. I also love the competitive side of getting the shop. Whether you're at odds with yourself or a pit full of photographers.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done a ton of music photography and if I shoot the same artist again I try to bring them a print of the past moment.
