You can only view so many wonderful amazing pictures on the web before you start becoming inspired to make your own. I started doing the photography for local theater companies and learned all the skills needed to get great pictures. From there I got the equipment for a portable studio and started asking people to be my models. It's exciting, nerve wracking, frustrating and wonderful to run your own shoot!

I think even a wonderful model on a plain background makes for a boring picture so I started making my own backgrounds to go with the pictures. This led to composites where I'm cutting out the models and putting them into different scenes. This gives the picture a story, texture and history that makes it much more fun to look at. The process takes a lot more time but in the end the picture becomes art.
