Photography is an art, and photographers are artist. As artist, every photographer has their own style. It is as unique as the person behind the camera. I describe myself as a life scribe and story teller. I strive for images that have personality and power. That one image that can tell an entire story in a single glance. A photographer may only capture that nirvana image, once in his life, but it’s that pursuit that defines my work. Thus the name Ripple Images, it defines my quest for images that have impact, like a stone thrown into a pool of still water.
As I began to look over my body of work, I realized as much as I love photography, I also love imagery as well. I love designing logos that speak to the heart of a company or organization. Even my compositions tell stories of life or dreams that make Middle school boys and girls believe they can be sports superstars. In everything I do, I try to make sure there is always something more than just a pretty picture.
This is why I start all my photo shoots with an interview with the subject if possible. Why are you here today? What would you like to see? What are your best attributes? I look as someone and I know what I find unique or interesting, and I try to blend their body image with my image of them to come up with something we both like.
