I believe in the the power of photography to influence people, from self-esteem, bonding strength, to trust and confidence. I am passionate about impact my work can have on others. That's also why I also do free portrait sessions for a couple of non-profits (Soulumination, YWCA) that support causes close to my heart.
My sources of inspiration are derived mainly from street photography masters, and like them I believe that a great photograph is the capture of a moment, within a dynamic composition. My 2nd source comes from the modernist, minimalist and Pop-Art artists, and from them, the desire of simplification and the interaction of graphic elements. Finally, my 3rd inspiration is from fashion photographers for their attention to details, and the perfection of lighting, posing and body language.
The best compliment someone could give me on a portrait is "You perfectly captured the essence of who I am /we are at this point in time." Isn't that what the best portrait photographer are supposed to do?
