I am a portrait photographer fascinated with Chiaroscuro's interplay between light and darkness. By playing with the balance of light and shadow, I seek to capture that which dwells beneath the surface. Through collaboration and direction, I coax out what is not always visible to the naked eye, in what I can only refer to as a “Rock and Roll” aesthetic with dark tonalities, such as portraying women in power poses instead of a diminutive demeanor. I delve deeply into my subject’s personalities and pull them out of their comfort zones, taking them and the viewer on a personal reflection journey, and telling a story that takes them to another place. My work is about people and relationships, and I am a photographer who loves light and life.
