My camera is an extension of my heart and vision connecting me to the world as I see it! Having one good eye since birth, I use it to the best of my abilities! It is through the craft of photography that I see, frame and capture images at a magical moment and in pleasing light to reveal their best elements! I aim for sound composition and I consider my style to be modernistic with a timeless quality! These images are printed on fine-art archival paper and canvas wraps.
