The cool thing about photography is the diverse array of people that you meet along the path. Each person and each person's space and place in life provides endless possibilities and defining moments to capture. I seek to find the spaces in between that fuse those moments with all of the respect and dignity that they deserve.
There is a feeling of the earth, the smell of the air, the energy of a space and the nuance of the people. It's my goal to capture the essence of place in hopes of revealing it's spirit.
Keep your mind open, your eyes wide and a continual awareness of the possibilities that exist.
Iron. The men and women of iron. They all have a part in the health and well-being of Mother Earth. Caring for, maintaining and shaping our future is what makes it all so interesting.
Flashes of Hope
Founded in 2001 by the parents of a child with cancer, Flashes of Hope is a volunteer driven organization solely focused on children's cancer. With chapters in 55 cities, FOH photographs more than 50% of the children annually diagnosed in the United States. For too many families, the portrait is the last one they have of their child. Thousands of children are waiting for a cure while doctors are forced to use outdated and toxic treatments. Cancer is the leading disease killer of children yet childhood cancer receives only 4% of federal funding for research. Since 2010, I have been a contributor to Flashes of Hope. Each year, it represents the most personally rewarding time spent behind the lens. My life is indelibly stamped with their sparkle and undenying sense of hope.
'Lines, lines, everywhere are lines. Blockin' out the scenery, breaking my mind' (sorry Five Man Electrical Band). Lines are truly everywhere and sometimes, the most interesting element in a scene. Often times, it's the spaces between the lines that can be the most alluring.
I 've never been able to color within the lines.
At work or at play? Maybe it's both. Or just plain passion at work.
