I’m interested primarily in street, documentary, and event photography. I like pictures that capture the convergence of form, emotion, and light. Pictures that tell stories or simply show the wonder of life. I like to photograph human beings, and I shoot street photography to understand cities, urban design, human interactions, and life.

Photography has been an important part of my life since the days of Kodak Instamatic cameras and 126 film. Though today I use digital cameras too, I still prefer to shoot on film. Maybe that makes me old school. I’m okay with that.

I approach photography from a background in photojournalism where I learned a lot about how the camera and the world interact while shooting news events on assignment. While some photographers work to achieve a perfect image, I am a visual storyteller. Some of my favorite recent work has been small business and craftsman profiles like my visits with Wunder Budder, A & J King Bakery, Gagnon Shoe Repair, and Witch City Ink. These shoots tell stories about interesting small businesses. They also give me the chance to learn something about a skill or craft and the people behind them.

My biggest influences are Robert Capa and Sebastião Salgado, two photographers who have used their cameras to change the world. Peter Turnley also makes some striking and beautiful black & white pictures that capture the emotional side of our world.  These giants of photography have each profoundly affected how I think about light, and composition.

 If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.  Robert Capa
