Sharp... Colorful... Vibrant...
Who am I?
I am a freelance photographer from the Tampa Bay area. The three words above describe the style of my photography... My initial focus began with landscape and cityscape photography, but now includes portrait photography.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, it's hard not to fall in love with New York City, the culture and her majestic skyline. My photographic journey started with a visit to NYC, taking in the sights and landmarks, armed with only a Point & Shoot camera. While shooting the sunset over the skyline of Lower Manhattan, I noticed a group of photographers lined up to capture the same image. As I observed them and the images that they had created, I knew then and there that I wanted learn more, I wanted to create art rather than simply take a picture.
Many of us lead very busy lives and have very little time to stop, breathe and enjoy the sights around us. I found myself in that same position until I found my passion for photography. I love to capture images of things we see all around us, and thanks to my camera, create images that we cannot see with our naked eye. My goal is to capture and create an image that is not only a work of art, but also to help the viewer imagine that they themselves are there.
