I am a fan of art. It doesn’t matter the form, I simply love art. It shows in the work presented before you as photography to art. You will find evidence of this as you probe through my site.
How it happened? When I ventured into music photography, I researched other photographers in the field. I noticed a lot of full frame photographs; photographs that captured the performance as whole. What amazing stuff these ladies and gents were showcasing. So, I couldn’t wait to jump in and see what would unfold. Music photography is way more than just snapping a photo; there’s a rhythm to it…. a beat, if you will and if you’re off, it will show.
As I would come home and cull through my images, I was dumbfounded at how flat they seemed. What I captured, in fact was not at all what I had seen and felt at that concert. How was I to remedy this and make myself stand out among such awesomeness? I figured it out and changed what I framed in my viewfinder, by choosing emotion. But guess what, that still wasn’t enough. And that’s when I started adding texture to my work. For me, it was as if I had struck gold and that, my friends, was that.
While my focus is music photography, I do take on other work. All of which will have some sort of texture added. For my more traditional clients, if you're willing to try something different, I lean more towards a type of graininess; almost a throwback to film grain, as opposed to the free-form creativity that you see with my music photography. Portraits are my specialty and that allows me to create custom pieces for you.
