Apart from being an IT geek, I enjoy most of my time making street photography or female portraits. I consider myself to be more of a human behaviorist than a photographer. In images I create, there has to be a clear, honest, and palpable connection with the person in front of the camera. It is my first and foremost concern. Without that connection, the shot is nothing more than a contrivance... a fabrication... and falls far short of the mark.
When I meet people, I want to know their stories, their strengths, their vulnerabilities, their loves, their fears, their passions. I want to know what lies beneath the surface. I believe a photograph should portray an honest representation of these things to the viewer.
Well, one more thing... I read a lot. And another one... I'm a heavy fan of rock and jazz music.
