WHO OR WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?
My Mother. When I was a freshman in high school, she passed away from cancer. Anyone who has experienced something similar knows how quickly you grow up after that. When I lost my mom, life took a drastic turn. From that point on, I began to care more about what was important in life and tried to seek meaning, tried to find a purpose for my life. I realized then, the power that photography gave me; that with it, I could help transport people to another place, another time, another feeling. And with my mom’s passing, I used photography to uncover something inside of me that I lacked as a kid – courage. With this clarity, I gained a confidence to go all out, and live the only life I have.
