I didn't set out to be a photographer...It just kind of happened. I suppose it's possible that it's what I do because my Grandmother was an avid amateur photographer and I did admire her a great deal, or it could be that my mother was always aspiring my siblings and I to be creative through some type of art... I couldn't tell you why for sure. What I can tell you is that I really love what I do and I spend a lot of time refining, perfecting and even obsessing over my work... It is a passion. I have spent a lot of time reflecting on things such as what is my "style" of photography. Style comes with time and is a difficult thing to force. I think more important than style is being aware of the literal nature of the image I see and striving to go beyond that in an aesthetic sense to create a captivating image.
