I love photography for its ability to capture the essence of a thing. This can mean being in the right place at the right time to capture that "decisive moment." But sometimes it means getting the light perfect in the studio, styling folds of fabric so the shape is just right, or retouching on the computer. I do whatever it takes to make the images shine and really show the soul of the thing, whether it's a product, a food item, or an event.

I also make functional ceramics; you can see some of my work in that medium here.
