I’m a Humanitarian Photojournalist whose goal is to bring about awareness and change in our world through the power of photography.
After many years of stepping away from a career behind the camera and accepting the role of a successful Web Designer and Web Programmer, I felt my heart pulling me back to my real passion — photography — more specifically, humanitarian and documentary photojournalism.
Combined with my experience as a professional Darkroom Technician, years working with analog and silver gelatin prints, and my former training in photography from the Colorado Institute of Art, I’m discovering new ways to apply those principles to the digital negative and modern post production techniques. I feel this ability gives me a unique edge that sets my images apart in our digital era.
I shoot digital with an analogue philosophy. Meaning, I believe in creating images in the camera that are capable of standing on their own without the need for post-production editing. I believe post-production editing should be reserved purely for artistic expression, not to compensate for flaws in the original capture of the image. Unlike the days of film and darkroom, every edit made in post-production destroys precious image detail. There is no such thing as “nondestructive editing”.
Just as Nick Ut’s photograph of the "Napalm Girl" is credited for bringing about an end to the Vietnam War, it is my dream, passion and goal that I will have an opportunity to use my photographic skills to capture powerful photographs that will bring about awareness and exposure to the level that people and governments will be motivated to take positive concrete steps to end humanitarian injustices.
