As a photographer, it is my job to create images from life's many great events. Photography is my passion, and the world is my muse. Seeing life's candid moments through the viewfinder of my camera gives me an adrenaline rush like no other. Capturing the sun gleam across the ocean as it sets into evening, seeing the smile that a man has on his face as his bride walks down the aisle - the happiness in these moments, these simple, genuine moments, is what makes photography so special to me.

Photography is an art, and to me, art is not something that can be taught. It is something that has to be understood, to be enjoyed in one's own unique way. Photography is something that has to be felt. My photos show those viewing them my own insight on the world; the way I see things happening.
