Documentary Street Photographer

I’m a documentary street photographer that finds beauty in light, color, and human interactions. There are so many fleeting moments on the streets that it’s difficult to capture a great scene.

What is a great scene? A great scene to me is when I combine good light, a strong moment, and good framing into one photograph. The strongest element is “moment” because without good gestures or expressions, there’s no personal connection to the viewer.

These elements are the same things that I look for when I photograph weddings. The only difference is at weddings it’s easier to anticipate a good moment. It’s much harder to witness on the streets. It’s also much harder to gain access because you’re photographing strangers that aren’t ready to be photographed. That challenge is why I love doing street photography.
