What began as a hobby documenting my adventures in New Zealand turned into a passion for photography and morphed into a career. I love both the expansive aspect of the natural environment, and the intimacy of a portrait, and I am constantly seeking a way to balance these elements in my work. I am inspired by color, cinematography, and mood, and am always trying to evoke emotion in my images.
