At Heart I Am A Documentary Photographer
Learning how to use an SLR camera in 2005, I began to tell stories with photographs. Two years later I traveled the United States kidnapped by a rock band as a tour photographer. A few months later I photographed my mom’s wedding, and posted it on my small photo blog. By the end of 2008 I had documented twenty-two weddings.
At heart I am a documentary photographer, telling stories through imagery. In 2012 I was named in the Top 30 Upcoming Wedding Photographers by PDN Magazine, and later profiled by Rangefinder Magazine.
Social documentary photojournalism is something I have been studying. Photography is a powerful tool, and it can be used to challenge our thoughts and actions. I want to tell stories of food deserts, Retired Racers, poverty in affluent cities, Native Americans, MusicCorps, and guide dogs.
