I have been a photographer since I was 14. Later I was a musician and I wrote computer software. I have now been a professional photographer for the last 10 years.
In my portrait work my goal is to make a connection with my subject. Creating images of a person is a process; we collaborate to create something that is part them and part me. I want to give that person the space and the freedom to let down their guard, if only for the split second that it takes to capture a moment, something genuine. Ideally, my images will engender a feeling or a mood in the viewer, even if those emotions are a projection of their own.
