I am an artist,
I am human being who wants to be known for great work
Great work that satisfies the needs of others, as well as myself.
Photography is an outlet,
An outlet for me to be heard,
Something that graphic design could never give me,
I don't dislike graphic design, I just want be to free
And free, I am, indeed
Nothing could be more satisfying than photographing a person.
The face intrigues me
The post production process is about the person, not about me.
I am an artist whose style can be recognized
My style isn't just imagery, it demands attention
though Im not an attention seeking person.
Behind the scenes is where you'll find me.
The camera is a part of me and I embrace it.
The skill level that I bring is intense and raw.
Rawness is natural and sometimes intimidating.
Cool, calm, collected, dedicated, and accomodating
All those things are simply me.
Yes I have talent, quite a bit,
But in this life time it takes more than talent.
It's all about going out and setting the bar higher
and raising it to be successful
This is not a game to me
This is my life
