Every moment is a gift, so we should try to soak it all in. We need to learn how to enjoy the light that is given to us, because by it we can see everything.

Using light and lines, the composition of my images are deliberate, simple, and clean. The colors are natural, deep, and rich. I take pleasure in creating photographs of people in deep intimacy and in capturing poignant moments with a calmness, a precision, and, above all, a gentle affection.

I am grateful for my God, Merryl (my wife), Ezra (my son), and that I can make photographs for a living. For me, there is no better life than one where you are surrounded by people you love and people that love you. That is what I love to capture honestly and beautifully.
