Life is all about adventure. I want a life that is filled with exciting new experiences and I want to capture those moments through my photography. What has always drawn me to photography was its ability to capture moments that last a life time. That is what I want to do with my work: capture and create memories. I'm excited to see where life takes me and what memories I can help people capture. I find inspiration in everything around me. Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t make a photograph with just a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, and the people you have loved.” I truly believe that to be true. Art is constantly evolving and ideas can come to a person in the most unexpected ways. It's thrilling to think that life can take you in a completely unexpected direction.
Someone recently told me to, “shoot what’s important to you.” Those words have stuck with me ever since I first heard them and I will always aim to shoot things that I think are important. Maybe some day I’ll figure out what it is about photography that interests me so much but until then I will continue to shoot what is important to me and find things that inspire me. I truly believe that as long as I am able to do what I love and make photographs, then I will always be happy. As long as I am always shooting what matters to me, there will never be a lack of passion for photography in my eyes.
Aside from photography I like: puppies, coffee, music, traveling, wine, good food, great people, Christmas... and life in general
