Photographer & Writer & Audio
San Francisco, CA, United States
I am a documentary photographer. I was born and raised in Southern California and began my professional career working as an editorial and commercial photographer for regional newspapers and magazines. To this day, I remain heavily influenced by my love of photojournalism and documentary photography. I am convinced my discreet, unobtrusive approach enables me to photograph subjects in a style that produces true-to-life images.
I believe it is the enduring trust I develop with my subjects that produces images that showcase their true character and personality. My images honestly convey each subject’s unique, personal nature.
My primary passion as a photographer is capturing the dynamic aesthetic of subjects within their own environments. In my 20 plus years in the profession, I have always gained the greatest amount of personal satisfaction and pleasure from creating images that are beautiful, that highlight diversity, and are also thought provoking.
I work with generous amounts of patience and determination to capture individuals in their own environments. I strive to create images that honestly and accurately portray subjects with pride and dignity.
I know the dynamic world in which we live is interrelated at local and global levels, and, is ever changing. The purpose of my project is to document the uniqueness of each subject, their place in the world, and portray the resiliency and spontaneous nature that defines the human spirit.
My goal is straightforward in purpose; document and capture the naturalness of people being themselves, living their lives while experiencing the moments and emotions that make up the sensations and passions of life.
I have been allowed entrée to witness and document the lives of others and that is, I consider, an amazing privilege.
