My brand as a photographer is all about creating modern, genuine, and artful photos with passion and sincerity.
What inspired you to start?
I first became interested in photography in high school when I visited an art museum and saw an exhibit of Allen Ginsberg's photography during the Beat movement of the 1960's. I was so captivated by the way he could capture the zeitgeist of such an exciting time in history through his photographs, and I realized then how powerful photography could be. I bought my first DSLR shortly after that, and now--thousands of google searches and several camera upgrades later--I am able to make a living off of taking photos.
