ME: I moved to North Carolina from Somers, NY in the late nineties. New York was always an inspiration for creativity. Our home was 45 minutes from NYC in Westchester County. When visiting NYC, which I did often, I was mesmerized by the fashion, diversity of people, and architecture. I remember wishing I had a camera almost all the time. My favorite past time was and still is people watching. I enjoy portrait photography most and I especially love when I can tell a story with a photo.
After moving to North Carolina, I was signed by a modeling agency and spent a couple awkward years on the wrong side of the camera. My comfort zone is definitely behind the camera. As uncomfortable as my modeling days were, I learned a great deal about the industry and commercial photography. I'm grateful for the experience and how it enhances my work today.
Since 2007 I have worked in politics in numerous capacities and have been fortunate to work with some amazing people. My political network awarded many opportunities to provide photos for elected officials and candidates. Working with politicians and campaigns continues to be exciting and rewarding.
MY STYLE: I consider myself a contemporary photographer. Color and light are extremely important to me. In shooting portraits and headshots my goal is to capture ones spirit, humanity, and "good side". I love editing in Photoshop but I 'm very conscious of over editing. Authentic images are always the most powerful to me. Although, a little blemish removal here and there never hurt anyone.
