Photography has taught me to pay attention. To all kinds of people. To nature…the small intimate details, as well as the grand landscapes. To keep memories of every moment. To notice and appreciate what is happening around me. Doing portraits has given me access to fascinating people I otherwise would not have met. I am interested in extraordinary people, nature, unusual places, and lots more. Photography encourages me to engage with these things and gives me reasons and access to engage. It was my very first love and it has changed me in a way that I myself cannot explain.
“I wish more people felt photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography exciting.” – Harry Callahan
