About Me

Once upon a time, I was an illustrator who started taking pictures to gather reference materials for my drawings, but soon I discovered that digital photography was a challenging yet instantly gratifying art form in itself.

I am particularly drawn to portrait photography because humans subjects receive the most emotional response from viewers. People are highly critical of images of themselves and others, and I enjoy the discussion that results.

Although I admire the photojournalistic style of many photographers, to me, the most compelling aspect of portrait photography is creating an image of something that would not otherwise exist.

I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
