is a young fine art portrait & conceptual photographer based in Tonawanda, New York.
‘Always adored painting and I suppose a photograph is, essentially, a painting of light. The way a shadow falls and the manner at which the beams filter over and into the scene, pure or altered, and the temperament it sets.
This past year a professor pointed out that I hardly shoot indoors. I think its because there remains a certain magic in the forest, or anywhere that nature still reigns or claims, that seems to be lost in other places. It becomes a neutral space full of possibility. Anything can happen there. It is far away from the deafening sanity that humanity has built around us. Here is where the imagination is freed from borders. Why do you think so many fairy tales have the forest as a backdrop? It’s because mystery mingles with beauty there. I suppose that’s the true reason I choose to shoot outdoors. I have no clue where I will go with photography but I have fallen in love with every aspect of the medium.’
