Before the majestic mountains of Aspen, Colorado, walking with my favorite camera, a woman nearby happened to comment on the intensely beautiful scenery that had us both captivated. She looked at my camera and then to the surrounding. “You must be a landscape photographer. Mother Nature is truly a beautiful subject.” Replying to her that indeed as beautiful as nature was, it was quite incomparable to the beauty of the human face… the subtly nuances created by a person’s eyes, their idiosyncratic gestures, and signature smiles.
I have a true passion and affinity for photographing the human face. I see both the subtle and pronounced moments of spontaneity that capture the subject’s true essence. Recording these fleeting moments on film is my passion.
Having a strong background in photojournalism, telling a story by means of pictures accustoms me to forge a bond, a trust to capture the subject’s humanity. Documenting a most special occasion such as wedding is a natural extension of my work. Storytelling by images is so evocative, poignant and memorable. I find it deeply satisfying. It would be an honor for me to provide you with an album that will be historical possession for your newly created family.
