I call this the 8th chapter in my life. I started focusing again on photography after the sudden death of my wife in 2005. I had been a photographer early in my career, mostly doing fashion work for clients like Napier Jewelry and London Fog. In this chapter I wanted to focus on people, and in doing that I found my talent of almost instantly being able to gain the trust of my subjects, getting them to reveal sides of themselves that the public rarely sees.
January of 2016 changes my focus slightly. I am excited to expand on my portrait/performance events which I call ‘one by one.’ I’m creating a portrait of an entire community one person at a time. They can be museums, companies, or any group of people people who have a common interest.
Every day I feel like I am just beginning. There are so many things I want to try. So many people I want to get to capture. So many perceptions I want to change through my photos. Every project is a new adventure. That’s what I want from my photos . . . and my life . . . many grand adventures.
