Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. -Aaron Siskind
I fell in love with photography a long time ago. I was 14 when I first started taking photos. I captured everything under the sun in Texas. My first camera was a film Minolta SRT200, now very antiquated, but felt like state of the art back then! As I grew older, I began to take photography more seriously. I knew it was something I wanted to start a career with. In college I set my sites on photojournalism, the rest is history.
I chose photography because I want show people the best things about themselves. I want to show the world in a different way that makes people think deeper. You see, photography is so much more than capturing an image. To me it's expressing yourself.
We all have different perspectives. When someone takes a photo they are sharing their perspective, and I think that is pretty awesome. If 10 people take a photo of the same subject, I guarantee that the photo will look different from each person.
Through my images I want capture the best aspects of my subject and tell their story. I want people to feel what the subject is feeling. Every time I pick up a camera I love photography more.
