Throughout my years working in photography, I have been a concert, portrait, event, wedding, lifestyle, and commercial photographer. For my own artistic purposes, I have explored street, fashion, and automotive photography. I have also worked as a graphic designer.
In 2019, I began focusing on taking photographs in a more candid manner––I would approach a scene without disturbing it and capture it just as it naturally was. Whether I was photographing people, cars, or anything else, the idea was to grab the subject in its completely undisturbed raw essence, to capture what I felt, what the subject felt, and transfer the raw feeling of that moment to the viewer.
But part of the way through the year, I began to think—what if I could further compliment and emphasize the model’s personality and mood in our shoot and make an even stronger statement? With my history as a graphic designer, I thought this would be a wonderful challenge to my creativity. This will be a focus for me throughout 2020, to capture subjects and push the envelope with digital design accents as well as added touches of texture, fabric, paint, and custom frames. This, in turn, will create a piece as physically complete as the subject in front of my cameras lens.
