I'm forever a student of the craft and absolutely love learning, trying new things and experimenting. My curiosity always pulls me towards my goals. Thankfully, photography and directing have endless possibilities. I'm a huge advocate for always producing and pursing personal work and long term projects. I'm releasing my first photography book this year with a collection of images I worked on for 3 years with principle ballet dancers titled Destined for Greatness.
I'm continuing that work this year because there was still so much I wanted to produce with the dancers. With personal work, it allows me to slow down and opens the door to shoot in any medium I desire. I take these opportunities to shoot on film and explore all my options visually and shoot in 35mm, 120 and 4x5/8x10 as well developing everything myself. This lets me have complete control in pushing/pulling, bleach bypassing and directly affecting how the negative and image looks. I've stocked up for the first half of 2021 with c41, E6 & black & white chemistry from Tetenal and have already completed a few shoots that will be part of a my second photography book, and my first full length documentary movie. I'm extremely thankful, and looking forward to making the best of 2021.
This site is dedicated to behind the scenes, sharing my processing and photography/lighting education and I may do some gear reviews.
