Hello and Welcome

This is my pictorial, if you will. My life through a lens.

I’ve always been in love with photography and after college, a few classes and a lot of trial and error here I am! This is my hobby- more or less that has become a bit of a side job. I admire the work of many photographers but among my favorites are Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz and Veronique Vial. Like them, I try to capture a moment rather than just an image. I love photojournalism but a studio shoot is just as great. I enjoy photographing people but sometimes being outside, alone with my camera is incredibly therapeutic and soothing.

I guess two things really inspired me to create this blog. The first one being that I saw another blog and the whole premise was "A picture a day keeps the doctor away." That seemed a little extreme to me, knowing that I probably wouldn't be able to keep up my end of the bargain. On the other hand, I have so many pictures. They might not seem like much to some but I'm proud enough to share them.

This blog started as a learning experience- you'll see a short critique on many of my posts. It's sort of evolved into an extremely primitive portfolio. If you like what you see or have suggestions or ideas, please feel free to email me.

Hope you like my shots.
