About My "storytelling" photo style

My Background

Sharing Stories of Social Causes

Photography as Communication

  

Since first picking up a camera in the early 1990’s, I have worked to build my skills at visual story-telling. While I’ve done many different types of photography, from commercial to weddings and portraits, I always find the greatest satisfaction in telling a photo story. I have found through my two-decade photography career that the most immediate way to grab a person’s attention is through a visual.

Sharing Stories of Social Causes

Photography as Communication

.  Photography speaks, without words. When I discovered the photographic visual language, I saw that this language could inform, educate and move viewers without the need for a shared spoken language. A properly created photograph can capture the raw feeling of a moment and convey a strong message through its visual. A good photo can change behavior.

Sharing Stories of Social Causes

Through my prints and photo books, I invite you to bring bits of my stories into your life and home.    

I believe this type of photography is greatly needed in the age we are in, as a form of expression to raise awakening on important social issues. It creates a medium to document the plights of those who are facing difficult issues and it can expose the social ills that need to be rectified. This is the age where change is becoming dominant and photography awakens people and can inspire change. A photo can challenge apathy.
