I feel like I’ve lived the majority of my life hindered with the subtle awareness that I had an artistic soul – but I seemed to have no artistic abilities!
I tried in vain to find some form of artistic medium that I could do with any kind of skill or proficiency, but I seemed to be terrible at everything artistic – I couldn’t draw, paint or sculpt. I couldn’t sing or play an instrument. I had no keen sense of fashion!
Then one day I picked up a camera. In that moment I became the creator, the director – the artist I had always longed to be. It was a feeling of absolute euphoria that has never left me. My camera is not just the tool of my professional life. It is my artistic soul personified.
Every time I pick up my camera to shoot I feel that rush of insecurity, and that glimmer of hope. I hope to always honor the profession of photography with competence and creativity, passion and knowledge.
