Fine Art photographer based in Charlotte, NC.
I like to capture emotion in photographing people and the play of colors when photographing nature. Emotion is color and color is emotion--both evoke passion in me. In photographing people, I feel a connection between the world inside of me as well as the outside world. Photography helps me connect to reality in a positive way. The miracle of Mother Nature's beauty and the science behind the growth of these amazing blooms is what especially draws me to Orchids. The process intrigues me like a mysterious journey in which I constantly challenge myself for a positive outcome.
