Capturing a moment in time. Finding that interesting perspective. To me, photography is the challenge to see something within the ordinary and photograph it in a way that reveals a captivating subject. By exploring the simple and generally familiar I work to find a way to bring light, color and textures together making the simple and familiar more compelling, allowing the viewer to experience the details and mood of a scene otherwise unnoticed.
