When I first started experimenting with photography, I shot everything that moved. It was fun and exciting, viewing the world through a lens and shooting everything that caught my eye. As I matured as a traveler and an artist, I came to the realization that it was essential to have a connection with the subject to capture the spirit of the image. The emotions, sensory input, and circumstances surrounding my experience in any location are fundamental to my process.
Travel embodies my artistic journey; whether I’m moving steps outside my office or halfway around the world, the act of exploration in motion dictates my creative process. Every part of the world has its own unique flavor—the people, history, and geography all pull me to a spot that I strive to properly represent. It’s a never-ending progression of life lessons, and I wouldn’t ever want it any other way.
