I have a deep love for photography that began many years ago when I was in high school. I also have a deep love for words, philosophy, theology, culture and people.
The word Photography is the combination of two Greek words:
Photography is the art of recording light. Light itself is a mysterious thing. The ancient Hebrew Scriptures begin with God saying, "Let there be light." The Christian tradition goes on to say that "God is light." In philosophy we seek to be enlightened. In science, light is unique in that it is both a wave and a particle. The speed of light is the basis for how we calculate and record time. Photography gives us the ability to record the light which is always moving.
This is why I love what I do. Time is always moving the future to the past. Those we love are always growing and changing. As my favorite band U2 has sung, "time won't leave me as I am..." We cannot stop the time from passing, but we can capture a moment and keep it for a life time.
As a photographer, my goal is to not just record an image, but to capture a story. Faces, hands, eyes, a whisp of hair or a unique place all have a story to tell and I want to help you tell it.
