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.

A mask to hide...

What do you see when the mask comes off

A Man of Integrity

A Woman of Strength


The hidden insecurities and weaknesses

The dark side of passions

or the other personality

Fears and anxieties of the Unknown

Hiding from the law or yourself

Hiding from abusers or stalkers

Anger with the world or your neighbors

And when you put the mask back on

You hide yourself from these emotions, fears

and personalities, hide behind another face

Not your own

To make the world see you as strong of character,

having goodness, fearless, upstanding,

Yet you tremble behind the mask

Afraid of being found out that the mask the world see is not yours.
