My passion for photography began me on a career that took me around the country starting as a food photographer, then moving on to fine art and weddings. My passion was for people I love the interaction between a photographer and subject, and eventually digital didn't do it for me anymore. I ended up back where I began shooting film and then I discovered wetplate Collodion. So as you will see in my picture sections I only shoot portraits now, occasionally on digital but mainly on film or wetplate.
