"Photography is the art of painting with light.
The world is my palette, my camera my brush, and the canvas is limited only by my creativity."


I do not use photography as a way of capturing memories; instead, I use photography as a tool to capture perspectives, my perspective. I photograph because I enjoy showing people alternative ways of looking at things. My camera is not a tool, it is an extension of my eye; a means of sharing my unique perspective. I often feel that the world can be more interesting, and often times more beautiful, if you simply slow down and try to look at things differently. My aim is to share that idea with the world and to show people my own unique perspective using photography.

There are two major categories that I sort most of my works into: aesthetic and symbolic. The photographs that I call my ‘aesthetic’ pieces are ones that I consider to be simply eye candy, and not much more. They are meant to be visually pleasing, but not much further than that; no intellectual content or deeper meaning. I start working on these photographs taking my subject and exploring it as deeply as I can visually speaking, completely ignoring any symbolism or stigmas that it might represent. I explore how it looks in different focuses, angles, framings, and lighting conditions. When I eventually find that scene that clicks with me, that is when I take the shot. My ‘symbolic’ shots require me to work a little differently. With those sorts of shots, I come up with an idea before I even find my subject. It is only after that that I ever find a subject that can symbolize what I want to portray and photograph it.

Recently I have been exploring alternative perspectives, both literally and figuratively. I have a newborn affinity for photographing subjects in ways that they are not normally considered or seen. As I said, my goal is to show people unique perspectives of seeing and thinking. Rather than tackling a subject or theme head-on, I try to be as subtle about the meaning of my work as I can. My goal in this is to encourage others and myself to consider content on a deeper level than usual.
