I live to photograph, it is my passion. From the moment I picked up a film camera almost 20 years ago I just fell in love with the marriage of technology, chemistry and art. I don’t particularly like to label my work with any specific genre purely because I like to incorporate elements from various genres such as portraiture and glamour photography but I’d say my work leans more toward the fashion and beauty side of things.
Sometimes the most technically proficient photographer is not always the best photographer. What makes a great photograph? It is one which goes beyond being technically flawless. It connects with its viewer and speaks to its viewer. The litmus test is this: does the photograph create an emotional impact? Does it rise above being merely interesting? Does it instill a mood? You can’t reach that level in photography through technical competence alone, you have to have an emotional connection to the subject and have the artistic ability to interpret, re-create, and present it in print.
