I’ve been asked – “But WHY do you do it”?

I do it because I can’t imagine not doing it! Every day I wake up and my focus is riveted to this medium. I honestly feel compelled to create these images. I see and conceptualize my work based on an inherent beauty that I find in a person, scene or object. Essentially, the images that I create speak to my soul. Sometimes in a soft whisper and sometimes with a piercing scream!

My biggest fear is that there won’t be enough time for me to produce all the striking ideas that constantly whirl around in my head!

“All photography simply involves evoking an emotional response. Whether that response is desire for a product or appreciation of beauty comes from the ability to tell a story with one simple image.” ~Ryan Colford
