Photos are the perfect way to really make people look at the world. I try to take photos that show the beauty of history combined with today’s creativity. I’ve been given the chance to photograph gold-hearted people in astonishing locations. Each photo has a story. If it’s a building, someone built that building. It has a story, it has life. If it’s a picture of a person, think of all the experiences that person has to offer. I don’t want to miss out on that opportunity, each person, place, or thing is a learning opportunity to grow as a person.

Some of my favorite photos have been spur of the moment- my brother does a hand stand on a mountain, my sister dresses in my brothers clothes, the clouds roll in on a mountain, or when walking down the street there is a beautiful Russian Orthodox Church.
