I have always had a deep passion for the arts, fashion design, and particularly photography. Having photographed subjects for years, I am now working my passion into a second career path. I especially enjoy photographing people, both in natural and studio settings, and above all, love the emotion and narratives that are implied and necessary behind good portraiture.
