“Photography is the medium by which I use to capture something I wish to invoke a memory, a feeling and experience that I can to return to whenever I wish. The subjects of many of my compositions usually involve a degree of nostalgia. I am engaged with images I feel have a silent beauty and contain a rivaling strength. I shoot all of my photography in RAW format and currently use a Professional Full Frame 50.6mp Canon 5DsR DSLR. I use a selection of lenses accommodating the distance of my subjects. All of my photos are cropped visually through the lens the moment it is taken. My post-processing is performed individually in Lightroom 5 to fully develop and perfect the ultimate quality of each photo. I do not believe in extreme alterations of an image – it is my personal style that it remains natural. When I finish a photo and I have an emotional connection, it becomes an obsession.”
