More About the Vendor:
My passion for photography began in my twenties - the first time I saw a photo from a 35mm camera, instead of from the Polaroid my father always carried with him. When I bought my first camera, I never left home without it.
Everything I saw was creatively framed in my mind, and then in my camera lens - new places and the people I ran into every day.
In the years since, I've been able to make a living doing photography, and now I understand why I love photography so much.
It's the creation of images that become permanent. No longer is the moment fleeting. And my photographs have helped me to voice to my innermost feelings - through my images, I can show the viewer what I saw in that moment. I find great beauty in sharing emotions, and I see the emotion in the simple beauty of places and things.
I like natural light best - whether captured digitally or on film, natural light enhances the moment and the mood.
When I shoot with infrared film, my images feel spiritual to me. Infrared film captures the light that you and I can't see, and illuminates the skin - it's sensual.
But black and white photography moves me the most - sometimes color can distract from the immediacy of the moment. Black and white images bring the emotions to the surface where they become palpable, and moments can become timeless. They become raw, and essential.
Being a photographer is an integral part of my personal journey - learning how to be true to myself has improved my abilities as a photographer, and has helped me learn to trust my intuition. When I think, "oh, I should have them try this" it often becomes one of the favorite images.
What started as a passion for photography has become a passion for life itself!
