Everything that could possible happen between people happens during photography. It’s cool to see life thru a lens and play out on that stage over and over again. For me photography is a chance to peek in the human condition a little bit and see what makes people human and too see what makes them tick. It could be love, hate, stress, fear or anything for that matter but I have seen it through photography. I love it and I have to see that real burn out. If I saw photography as a job then I would get burnt out. I love to see a different way on how to understand people and even the relationships between people. Seeing so much beauty, emotion and action in photography made me open my eyes. Every day and ever place I walk I see something I can capture with a camera. I am always making notes and creating my own Rolodex of ideas. When I photograph, I document life happening before my eyes. It’s dynamic, fluid, and I must react to what’s happening before me to capture its essence. I love the problem solving and the hunt that comes along with photography.

If Only...

If I had all the answers I would tell you in the blink of an eye

If I had all the reasons, you would never again wonder why

If I had the strength to be myself… to let you be your own

If I had the power to hold you in my arms,

to shelter you from all the world

From all the ugliness and evil and broken dreams…

but we both know the answer to that…

‘If only’ is a wish, a dream, a hope, a faded thought

‘If only’ is what you whisper, before the damage of clarity is wrought

‘If only’ is what holds you close, and pushes you away

‘If only’ is the sword, the sheathe, the swathe that holds the blood at bay

‘If only’ is the answer to the question ‘why oh why?’

‘If only’ one day more in life, one day more to wonder why

We don’t really want the answers, we dont really want the truth

All we ever really want is a chance…

A chance to hope a chance to dream,

a chance to wonder what it means

so give me free will

and strength to deal

The answer to life is it is as it is

The answer to death is it happens

The answer to love is it is what we dream of

The answer to peace is it is but a dream

The answer to dreams is they are how we live

I can’t whisper more then hollow promises

I can’t kiss away more then fears

I can’t give you anything but my word

I can’t show you anything more than my tears...
