I have been a professional wedding photographer for more than a dozen years. This means that I take a lot of portraits of a lot of people. There are certain constraints to what I can do in my profession, so I like to break out of those constraints where opportunity presents. In addition to odd photos of my parents and long-exposure photos of dancers, I also roam the streets of the world, rapidfiring my cameras from the hip and photographing people as well as street animals. I live in Chicago and New York, and often travel to places where the dogs and cats are.
