My goal is to make images speak, exposing "how it feels". I try to achieve in my work: balance, beauty, consistency and continual growth.I began shooting at age 13. My passion for photography stems from my grandfather who was from Germany. He later immigrated to Montana, and then started his own family in San Francisco. We spent every other weekend flipping through old black and white photos in the basement of their home. I would follow him into his dark room and watch him make magic!My grandfather taught me to look at life from all angles through a lens.
