I am a self-taught amatuer photographer, but more accurately I am a storyteller through photography. Everyone and everything has a story. I love working with people of all ages, I love working with animals, and I love working on fine art projects. My favorite aspect of working with people is connecting and collaborating to tell stories through images. Animals tell stories, too, and I create portraits of animals, whether domestic or wild. There are stories in places, too. I feel a strong connection with certain locations and am drawn to create images to visually capture "spirit of place." Most of all, I love finding – and showing others – unexpected beauty in the stories all around us.
