The camera is a tool that has given me a way to express myself and show what I see and feel. As early as I could remember, I was driven to create with my hands, and photography was the art form that pushed and molded me further as a visual artist. I am driven by the light and the way it dances in the trees or shines on the rock faces. The light leads me to my subjects and allows me to capture them in their full glory. By paying attention to lines and shapes and getting rid of all the distractions; helps me to focus my attention more on the design of the shot. I compose how I feel at the given time and ask questions later.
