I am a photojournalist and I tell stories with my camera. I am so lucky to be a part of the moments that make a life, a wedding day, time with the family or children playing. There is a magic to photography that I fell in love with the first time I made a photograph. I will never forget seeing the black and white image appear on the paper under the developing bath. That print, my peaceful place a bridge by my childhood home, still hangs on my office wall. It reminds me where I came from, reminds me of a moment in time. That was 12 years ago, but I will never forget the moment I took the image, the magical feeling that moment I saw the finished product and fell in love with photography. Photography has that strange power to bring you back to a time, place and feeling. It tells a story. Life is fleeting and moves fast. With the camera I am able to slow life down just a little and hold on to a few rectangles of time.
