About

Photography's got me good. The obsession is real.

I grew a passion for photography during college when I was studying the art and craft of it all – shooting 35mm film, developing my own negatives and making prints.

When DSLRs came on the scene, I was so into the experimentation and instant feedback that only digital could offer. I made it a point, early on, to become comfortable with manual shooting. I’ve become quite fast at pre-metering scenes – thinking like a camera and knowing how to trick it to get the look I need.

One of the main goals to improve my craft is to consistently achieve critical focus. I appreciate that diligence in other photogs and can get annoyed when an, otherwise wonderful, capture is ruined due to focus issues.

My biggest photographic challenge? Finding the time to try out all the ideas in my head. I look forward to trying out a bunch of new concepts soon. Stay tuned…
