“THE WHOLE POINT OF TAKING PICTURES IS SO THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO EXPLAIN THINGS WITH WORDS.”

-ELLIOTT ERWITT

 

I got my first taste of photography watching my father shoot on his XG-1 Konica Minolta. I  wanted to use the camera pretty badly and would take it out of the camera bag and pretend that I was taking pictures. I also loved looking at photo negatives after the photos were developed. Looking at my father's photo composition through the negatives helped me understand framing my shot and understanding the subject in photos. That first encounter with photography sparked a fire that continues to grow.

 

I love shooting everything. Some of my favorite shots have been travel landscapes, events, and urban. The amazing thing about photography is you are always improving and learning something new. Each new location or subject I shoot, I learn something new. Whether it is to look for that new angle or wait thirty minutes for the light to change I learn I can always improve my shooting. 

 

When I am not shooting, you can find me doing my other passions in and around Boston: Kiteboarding, skiing, hiking, on the beach, looking for great menswear stores, searching out the best outdoor gear, or walking around my picturesque South End neighborhood of Boston.
