Reasons to Choose My Services


My lifelong passion for photography was the reason for me to quit my job and follow my dreams. Photography – to me – is the art of capturing special moments in life through my lens.


The art of photography is the ability to create images that stand out and have some type of special connection to the audience. Behind my lens I feel more like a carpenter than a photographer – constantly creating images to share the way I percieve the world. I love to photograph people due to the fact that every scenario is different and presents the ideal moment to create someting special.


I get inspired when I spend time on the road, traveling the world, and when I am in nature. I also find inspiration from various artists such as Ansel Adams with his impactful black and white landscapes, Paul Nicklen with his award winning National Geographic images, and Brassaï together with his very unique night scenes.
