I am a simple man who loves making photographs and spending time with my girlfriend and kids. I am fortunate to be able to spend a good amount of time driving gravel roads capturing all that nature has to offer, whether it be wildlife or my favorite subjects: sunrise and sunset. And once in a while I make myself be patient enough to photograph families and weddings.
What inspires you to do the work you do?
The enjoyment people get out of my photography. Whether it's a gorgeous sunset or a family session that captures the joy of the family, the reaction people give to my photography inspires me to make the next shot better than the previous one.
How do you best disconnect from the daily grind and reconnect with your passions?
Hop in the car and just start driving, with absolutely no plan on where to go, or how long to be out shooting. Just find a place that catches your attention, go for a walk and start shooting. I enjoy nothing more than a calm night next to a lake or a pond, waiting for the colorful reflections that sunsets offer.
