“The first time I was introduced to photography was at age 8 when I saw my uncle’s camera and his work it inspired me to see how different photography and painting could be. All my life, from an early childhood my primary subject has been people and the human eye. I believe that eyes are the window to the human soul. I always ask my models to show me their personality during the shoot. I am not looking for a pretty face I am looking for a person’s personality. Because of my artistic background my photography is telling a story with images. The technical aspect in my photography is very important to me, especially when it comes to lighting. I don’t like any shadows on my subjects unless I do it on purpose. I spent about two years to find the lightning technique that I love and am happy with.”
