About Me

I am a photographer driven by a passion to capture and artistically refine a wide array of unique and diverse subjects. My lens spans across a broad spectrum, encompassing people, landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, and beyond. I aim to craft images that reflect my perspective of the world with the hope to spark an emotional response.

 

Among my favored subjects are people, particularly those found on the bustling streets or those in vulnerable circumstances. I firmly believe photographing individuals in their natural environment offers a poignant insight into the human experience. When I venture to new locales, I aim to immortalize the local scenery, coasts, and urban vistas, celebrating the unique allure of each place.

During my post-processing, I typically opt to showcase my images in black and white. This choice stems from the inherent dramatic and powerful nature of monochrome compositions compared to their colored counterparts. I hold a strong belief in the timeless quality of black and white imagery, which amplifies the emotional resonance of the photograph. Through this deliberate use, I endeavor to convey my vision in a more impactful manner. As renowned photojournalist Ted Grant remarked, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls."

While black & white remains my preferred medium, I also recognize the merit of presenting certain images in color when it serves the subject most effectively.

 

Utilizing photography as my artistic medium, I endeavor to present these images here with the goal of igniting inspiration in others to see the world and its diverse inhabitants through a new lens.
