This is why I love photography. A simple moment in time. Something that was not “posed.” There was no plan. I do not work like that. I don’t tell people how they should act in order to deliver a good product. It is up to me to watch and wait. I am being paid to […]Read more "A moment…"

Why? because photography is not about apertures and shutter speed. People might ask me what the ISO was for a particular image. I may or may […]Read more "Why I love Photography…"
