Seeing the world through the lens of a camera has inspired me to pursue my passion of capturing live music events. To me, photography is an art of observation. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

I’m a freelance photographer specializing in live music photography with a style consisting of colorful and energetic imagery. Shoot what it feels like, not what it looks like…I don’t photograph subjects,  I photograph the way they make me feel. Admittedly, it’s a bit of a strange concept. But it’s honestly the best way to describe my approach to the craft.
