"Photography is something that I enjoy. It makes me happy. I love seeing it, and I love making it.
My work is a cross between all types of photography. It includes portraits, landscapes, still-life,
and nature. What I capture represents my life. How I see things and what things I think are
beautiful. The best moments make the most beautiful photos. I try to make photos that make me
feel comfortable and warm. Work that is easy to look at and reminds people of paintings and
things that make them comfortable.
This year the majority of my work was shot on film. I’ve come to love it. There’s a feeling behind
film that you can’t quite capture with digital. It’s got this gorgeous texture that is the base behind
my photos. Film is something that I used to be scared to use. I took my time to set up the
perfect shot in hopes to create something amazing. Now, I believe that I need to focus less to
shoot film. Capture moments as they come and accept the imperfections as they are.
I’m very influenced by other photographers who capture moments as they come as well.
Photographers that have a great feeling and eye. People who see imperfections as beautiful.
I’m also very influenced by films. I try to make my photos look very cinematic. Films are
beautiful and they are full of beautiful moments. I find them to be some of the best inspirations
to fuel my photography.
I want to have new experiences with nature and people this year while continuing to capture
these moments the best I can. I’m excited for 2020 and the work that is to come."
