A picture speaks a thousand words. It has the power to move a mind and compel it to act. Photography in its purest form is a powerful tool that brings people together, creates memories and evokes power emotions. I love my job because photography is my means of Self-expression and the lenses I see the world. It allows me to leave a positive impact on the world around me. I am rejuvenated by the opportunity of bringing the ideas in my head into existence. To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. You can’t deny that photography has played one of the most significant roles in documenting and shaping the course of history as it has progressed over the last 100 years. This gift of being able to capture a special moment in a unique and artistic way. Creating teaches me so much about myself and the world around me. Each photo or project is a representation of my journey as I always strive to get better and always push my limits.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
