I truly appreciate that you are reading this.

YOU ARE WHY I’VE CHOSEN TO WRITE THIS STATEMENT.

  GLOSSIES AND EDITORIALS STARTED MY LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY LONG BEFORE I KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT CREATING PHOTOGRAPHS.  I remember, A GOOD DAY INCLUDEd TAKING A STACK OF MAGAZINES AS BIG AS I CAN CARRY TO THE CAFE TO NURSE A COFFEE FOR HOURS WHILE FLIPPING THROUGH AS MUCH CONTENT AS I CAN BEFORE BEING OVERWHELMED.  

I LOVE MANY THINGS THAT MODERNITY MAY FIND EXHAUSTING. I LISTEN TO VINYL RECORDS AND I SHOOT FILM.  THEY REQUIRE USER PARTICIPATION TO FUNCTION AND THERE IS NO PASSIVE APPROACH TO FLIPPING A RECORD OR CHANGING A ROLL OF FILM.  ONE MUST BE PRESENT AND ENGAGED TO USE THESE THINGS. THESE TRAITS ARE USUALLY PRESENT WHEN A GREAT PHOTOGRAPH IS MADE. DIGITAL IS OBVIOUSLY BETTER BY ALMOST EVERY MEASURE (I’M PERHAPS AN ANALOGUE SNOB BUT I’M NOT A BLIND FOOL).   REGARDLESS, I ALWAYS SHOOT A ROLL OF FILM ON EVERY SHOOT, AND OFTEN ENOUGH, THE BEST CAPTURE IS ON THAT SINGLE ROLL OF FILM.

MY GOAL IS TO HAVE MY PROCESS BE THE SAME SHOOTING DIGITALLY OR ON FILM.   WHEN WE STRIVE FOR MAXIMUM PRECISION AND INTENT WITH WHAT IS MADE AVAILABLE, IT TENDS TO SHOW IN THE PICTURES.  I BRING A ROBUST LEVEL OF INTENTION TO EVERYTHING I DO. IMAGES MADE WITHOUT THIS INTENT ARE JUST SNAPSHOTS. I STRIVE TO DELIVER IMAGES THAT CAN NOT BE CATEGORIZED IN THIS MANNER. MY RECENT PROJECTS HAVE BEEN FOCUSED ON FASHION.  THE DIALOGUE I WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MOST WITHIN THE WORLD OF FASHION LEANS TOWARDS ANDROGYNY AND EXPLORING OR BREAKING THE GENDER NORMS.

Thanks for your interest in my work, it means a lot to me.
